United Community Ministries (UCM) is a pivate, nonprofit social services agency that has been rooted in southeastern Fairfax County "At the Heart of Community" since 1969. UCM mobilizes the power of community to equip, educate, and empower people to measurably improve their lives.
Our mission is to assist families and individuals to improve their lives in a manner that builds their self-reliance and fosters their ability to function at the greatest level of their economic and social capacities.
UCM is a bedrock of support and a safety net for families and individuals who have fallen on hard times and need practical solutions to get back on their feet. In addition to attending to immediate basic needs, UCM is a place where people come to find hope. Through our many other programs and services, people receive the help they need to move out of poverty and into long-term stability.
