Client Assistance & Advocacy Program

Bethlehem Center, Polytechnic Center, and Wesley Center all offer various activities that help enrich the community including food pantries, clothing closets, facilitating community service events and community resource fairs. The centers are available for community or neighborhood meetings, family gatherings and educational classes. Each center director is involved in local community collaborations and is able to offer services that assess community needs. 


The Client Assistance & Advocacy program helps meet basic needs by providing emergency groceries and clothing. Adults, families and senior citizens with limited incomes are provided with monthly supplemental groceries. United Community Centers provides approximately 27,000 pounds of food to an average of 1,200 clients per month through its three neighborhood centers. Social activities and resource fairs are also available for low-income senior citizens. 


This program facilitates outreach activities by collaborating with several agencies to enrich communities by bringing needed resources to low-income neighborhoods such as:


  • Community Resource Fairs

  • Distribution of school supplies and uniforms

  • Free tax preparation for low-income families

  • Thanksgiving baskets to children and families

  • Christmas gifts to children and families

  • Emergency groceries and clothing

  • Referrals for emergency assistance
