United Community Corporation helps empower all members of our community to achieve economic self-sufficiency by providing a range of supportive services. We continue to expand and improve our services, which include; an emergency shelter with case management, a program for seniors, low-income housing, and a range of high-quality after school and summer camp programs for youth.

We are always open to new partnerships and collaborations to aid in fulfilling our mission to help lift low-income residents out of poverty and to improve the quality of their lives in every way we can.

You can also contact us if you are interested in volunteering - we welcome your help in better serving the community !

Congratulations Maria !

Maria Torres, was awarded the Russ Berry Making A Difference Award!  Maria has been extremely helpful, resourceful and an overall force to be seen during the recent pandemic.
She has been able to scale our food pantry services to numbers that are way beyond anything that I would have thought possible. She remained focus on the mission of our agency through her own personal struggles and  major challenge of the pandemic. I stand in awe at her dedication.
In the past 10 months, she and her staff have organized, prepared, and distributed more than 150,000 meals to some of Newark's most vulnerable residents.  Those numbers are unreal but proveably REAL!  The folks at Russ Berrie (Ramapo College) have presented her with these amazing awards and I am so happy for her.

  • Many homes built before 1978 have lead-based paint. Lead from paint chips and dust can pose serious health hazards.

 

  • Sellers must disclose known information on lead-based paint or lead-based paint hazards before selling a house.

 

  • Real estate sales contracts must include a specific warning statement about lead-based paint. Buyers have up to 10 days to check for lead.

 

Are you at risk of lead-based paint hazards in your home?

Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.
