Our Mission

UCC is a social justice driven community center that has been serving the East New York neighborhood of Brooklyn for over 60 years. Our mission is to work together with residents of all ages and cultures to address our community’s challenges, celebrate its strengths, and provide services that improve lives.

Our current programs include: the Morris L. Eisenstein (MLE) Learning Center for 110 pre-school children; services for immigrants which include immigration assistance, English classes, and civics/ citizenship preparation classes; Protecting the East, a project that conducts women’s sexual and reproductive health workshops, community-wide condom distribution and HIV/STDS prevention education and outreach; East New York Farms!, an urban agriculture project that includes a youth internship program and the largest youth-run farmers market in the country.

In addition, UCC promotes activities for adults and children throughout the year.

UCC is a member of United Neighborhood Houses of New York and the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies.
