The American Public Human Services Association (APHSA) is proud to partner with United Community for the Technology For A Cause event this year. Your donations will help fund programs for families in Northern Virginia
United Community is a 53-year-old nonprofit offering an array of human services that lift families out of poverty. We engage community voice and family participation to break the cycle of generational poverty.
Our mission is to build thriving communities and create equitable opportunities by providing supportive services and advancing community driven solutions.
Our vision is to end multigenerational poverty.
83% of our clients live at or below the federal poverty level. Our service area has a high concentration of affordable housing, but few amenities, features, or supports to help residents – especially low-income and residents of color – to improve their quality of life.
Your support will help transform the lives of the individuals and families we serve by providing them with the resources, encouragement, and support they need. A family like Maria’s.
Maria’s first interaction with United Community was through a program that provides critical basic needs and supportive services to families in need of emergency assistance. Maria was experiencing food insecurity and needed dental work, but was not in a financial position to get the care she needed. United Community provided her with food and financial assistance to finish her dental work and encouraged her to enroll in our English as a Second Language course to open doors of opportunity. Maria not only learned English, but she also met friends and neighbors and became part of the community. Today, Maria is an advocate for other women and young mothers in similar circumstances and an active volunteer at her daughter’s elementary school.
Generous donors provide the critical support needed for United Community to offer a wide array of supportive services. Your contribution will not only support food distribution, rent and utility assistance, after-school programs, ESL education, and more but also help us engage the community in efforts to identify systemic changes that are critical to ending multigenerational poverty.
With your support we can build thriving communities and end multi-generational poverty.
