Thank you, Sallie B. Austin

How does one understand that they have stronger calling? Lean into the good. That is what Sallie B. Austin did. She found the good and exaggerated it. 

When Sallie B. Austin was home, her door was always unlocked. If somebody needed help or a place to stay, they could walk right in and she’d be waiting with open arms and good dialogue. 

As a youth, Dr. Robert  J. Austin remembers a local woman often spending the night in their Newark home to get away from her abusive and volatile relationship. Sallie provided her with a safe space whenever she needed it and was the first one to stand up for her when the opportunity arose.

Sallie had a passion for giving back to her community and helping those in need. She was a frequent visitor of the local supermarket buying groceries for families that couldn’t afford them or a mother down the block that had several children to feed.

“My mom was a giver,” Robert, who is Sallie’s only child, said. “She always gave to people that didn’t have very much. She would always tell me that when you give, you’re killing selfishness. She taught strong lessons that last a lifetime.”

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.

Intern Testimonials

Chris

Christian Marsette
Current UCC team member

My intern experience with UCC was a great experience! I am very grateful for Yucleidis giving me the oppurtunity to intern at UCC and I was welcomed with opened arms and felt right at home interning at UCC. It was a great learning experience interning at UCC and I learned so many things from everyone I came across.
I chose to work with UCC after my internship because I love helping out the community in anyway I can. I have done lots of community service in high school and college and it became a passion of mine to help others in need. It was the right fit for me to work at UCC and me working here gave me an opportunity to keep doing what I love which is helping others.

Former UCC intern

My experience at UCC has been wonderful.  I've learned so much about the field within these past few months of interning.  Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, it was easy to feel comfortable quickly.  They are also very helpful and knowledgeable about what should and needs to be done.  It's such a positive environment to be a part of and I am thankful for that.  Overall, it is an experience I'll always remember.
