Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To help those in need to transform their lives by providing food, crisis care, opportunities for education and employment, and a hand up to families , individuals and children who are fighting to break the cycle of poverty
United Against Poverty is the only national organization to provide families with both emergency food supplies and the opportunity to obtain highly subsidized groceries, including hygiene products, six days a week. We provide a comprehensive approach to fight and reduce long-term, poverty related hunger. Additionally, our Passport Out of Poverty model is a holistic, multi-pronged approach that breaks the cycle of poverty through:
- Offering immediate hunger relief
- Stabilizing crisis situations
- Multiplying client purchasing power for food & hygiene items
- Restoring dignity, self-respect, and a sense of personal responsibility
- Establishing self sufficiency
Our organization is not affiliated with any religion or faith-based organization. However, those who work here do feel called to this type of mission-based vocation and our founders have embraced a long-term commitment to help families break the cycle of poverty. The United Against Poverty model is unique in that it requires clients to make a contribution of some sort such as attending classes, participating in programs, contributing a percentage of the cost of food or volunteering. We provide ongoing support and establish ongoing relationships with clients. It is the guiding principle of our leadership that people living in poverty do not need empty handouts, but a program that offers a comprehensive hand-up towards a new future.
