As United Community Centers continues to monitor the constantly evolving COVID-19 situation we would like to keep you informed on our latest status.
We're committed to making the best decisions for the health and safety of the children and families we serve, as well as our staff. We will continue to keep you updated as to any future changes regarding closures in Fort Worth and how that will affect UCC's services. Please keep your eyes open for an update from us in at least 2 weeks.
Starting Monday, March 16th, UCC will not open its after school program until at further notice. However, during this closure UCC will be doing its best to meet your child's educational and nutritional needs! Our Literacy Specialists are working with families and children to continue their academics while at home. Student names are entered into an instructional site for reading, math, science, social studies and writing activities. Specialists are recommending at least 45 minutes of math and 1 hour of reading per day. They will be able to check and monitor work for the students daily.
Our food pantry hours are from 9AM-1PM. Days of operation are:
Bethlehem - Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday.
Polytechnic - Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.
Wesley - Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Center contact information can be found here.

The 16th Annual Carvey Golf Tournament has been postponed until August 31st, 2020. To read our full statement, please follow this link to our website. Administration is working on contacting our sponsors and teams individually to update them on this change of events.
As of this moment, we are continuing the monthly Wesley Mobile Food Pantry. This pantry happens on the 4th Saturday of the month, and the next one will be March 28th, 2020. We will be approaching this pantry much differently by pre-packing all food items for clients to pick up with minimal contact. Volunteers will be needed to help pre-bag grocery items.
With more and more families being asked to quarantine, at-risk school-aged children losing access to school lunches, and grocery stores running out of food items regularly, the need for these groceries is higher than ever. If our ability to offer the Wesley Mobile Food Pantry is impacted by shut downs and we have to cancel it, we will you immediately.
If you think you will volunteer, please sign up on our website so we have your email. In the case that the Mobile Food Pantry is cancelled between the time you are reading this email and the 28th, we will notify you immediately.
Please do not volunteer if:
You are over the age of 65
You are feeling sick or another household member is sick
You have underlying health conditions
You have traveled within the last 2 weeks
UCC's Summer Education Literacy Program focuses on combating summertime loss of learning. Due to the rapid pace of how current events are changing, we will be waiting to mail our Campership brochures this year.
There are many factors to be determined, and UCC is simply unable to predict at this moment how the Campership program will need to evolve to meet the needs of our children this summer.
UCC will keep you updated on this developing situation in April.
