Mission Statement

UJC services as a coordinating body of neighborhood, secular, civic and fraternal organizations. Formed in 1971 by neighborhood leaders and residents, the UJC works to preserve and stabilize the Lower East Side of Manhattan community through the provision of a wide range of human services and community development programs. While the majority or programs are oriented to the needs of the elderly, UJC also operates a wide range of programs for families and children.

Description

With families fraying, spread out, or non-existent, a substantial portion of long-time residents of the Lower East Side doesn’t have family they can count on for the help they need.

UJC fills that gap with services such as home health care aides, food assistance programs, social services, and senior centers.
