Dear Friends & Supporters:
It is a privilege to serve as the President and CEO of
United Communities Against Poverty, Inc. (UCAP), a 501(c)(3)
non-profit serving Prince George’s County for nearly 50 years.
This year, our strategic plan has been created to allow the
work of our Board and staff to continuously position UCAP to
serve for another decade.
Poverty continues to have a profound impact on the lives of
American families. The citizens of Prince George’s County are not
exempt from the debilitating effects of inadequate resources. Studies show
that during the past months over four million Americans experienced homelessness.
The number of hungry and homeless people is rapidly growing as a result
of job layoffs, lack of affordable housing, home foreclosures, lack of
government (Federal, state and local) funding, and the persistent rise
in food and gas prices (including oil to heat homes). This unfortunate
trend has increased the demand for services from organizations like UCAP.
