Mission Statement

1. Mission -To holistically uplift communities one family at a time. -Scripture Theme: "Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up." Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 2. Vision -We desire to see families in crisis "lifted up" and restored to spiritual, emotional, and financial wholeness.


Uplift Community Development is a 501(c)3 Faith-Based Non-Profit Organization located in Arlington, Texas. Founded by Dr. Maurice Pugh, Uplift strives to work within the community as we "Uplift our communities one family at a time." We model our organization under 3 core services, Education, Encouragement, and in the future Employment. Within our Education department, we have our mentoring and tutoring program, where students are raising their academics and learning how to become leaders. Along with that, our Dad’s Club, where once a month we work with the fathers of our communities. Lastly, we work to match volunteers with school events such as Career Days, Carnivals, and Read-In Days. Under Encouragement, we provide Thanksgiving baskets and Christmas presents to families in need. We also do community enrichment events like our MLK Boys2Men Seminar where boys learn the importance of choices, police interaction, and carrying out MLK’s vision in society today.

If you would like to become part of the Uplift family, we would love to have you, whether it’s to mentor or volunteer. Together, we can all make a difference in the community, and Uplift it one family at a time. Feel free to check out our website and follow us on social media. Also, if you would like to keep up with us month-to-month, leave your information and we will subscribe you to our newsletter.
