In loving memory of Pastor Veronice Horne

Pastor Veronice Horne opened every United Community Corporation board meeting with a prayer.

Anyone that knows the pastor would expect nothing less. Prayer was as much a part of her life as breathing and each time she closed her eyes to talk with God, her words carried hope, faith and most importantly, gratitude. Despite passing away on Nov. 9, 2020, Pastor Horne's life mission is still as strong as ever and lives in the hearts of all those she surrounded herself with.

A fractioned glimpse of the trials Pastor Horne experienced only begins to tell her journey’s inspirational story. As a teenager, she ran away from home and lived on the streets of Newark for what she didn't know would be 10 years. 

Then, a free meal at Newark’s Goodwill Rescue Mission changed the trajectory of her life forever. One of the organization’s churchwomen approached her with a conversation and helped Veronice find her passion for helping people.

That conversation was one of the moments that motivated Veronice to graduate from East Orange Adult High School, get a job, marry and pushed her towards her generous life mission.

 

By his grace, stay in the race and again you will see my face

Emergency Shelter Case Management

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 !

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.

Thank you for your volunteering spirit. As UCC events, programming and activities arise we will reach out to volunteers who have completed this form. Hope to see you soon!!

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.

Current 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.
