Volunteer Your Talents at UCAP!!

Welcome to United Communities Against Poverty, Inc. (UCAP) Volunteer page. We hope you will connect with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to stay abreast of the exciting work, news and opportunities within our fine organization. UCAP is on the move and we want you to be a part of our journey.

As an organization committed to alleviating the conditions of poverty, improving quality of life for those in poverty, and maximizing economic opportunities for those in poverty and dignity for all, throughout our history; UCAP does not to discriminate based on gender, race, age, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability. Our philosophy is to enable individuals to achieve their full potential, enhancing the family unit, and strengthening communities.

Our core program components work to provide families with employable life skills; job training & readiness; placement and retention services; financial literacy education; affordable housing options for low-to-moderate income families through the sale of our low-to-moderate priced green re-constructed single family homes, emergency food pantry and essential emergency items.

More than ever, it is critical that we help the under-served and disenfranchised in our community; give to those less fortunate; and offer hope for a brighter future. This is one contribution each of us can offer to the women, children, and families struggling in the current economic economy recovery. Our programs thrive because of the hard work and kind dedication of faith based organizations, government officials, organizations, schools, social clubs and individuals. By volunteering you can assist with improving the lives of those served by UCAP.

“A Community is comprised of various voices that lead to advocacy, Advocacy that leads to action, Action that leads to impact, Impact that stands the test of time.” — Rasheeda Jamison-Harriott, President & CEO
