Community Service

Neighborhood Center

Our Church  collects the first Sunday of every month to deliver to the Neighborhood center.  Much appreciated are canned good, peanut butter and don’t forget the pets.they like food too.

At Christmas we collect money and have usually been able to donate over a $1,000.

The Bridge will opening soon and you will find information about that.  Anyone wishing to volunteer is welcome to contact the office. The Bridge will operate as a crisis shelter and day center. The facility will provide homeless adults with shelter in conjunction with support services such as meals,

laundry, showers, access to health care, linkage to housing, case management, and benefit assistance.

The Bridge will employ national best practices of coordinated entry and housing first with a goal of housing within 30-90 days. These services aim to see successful transition into transitional, permanent supportive housing, or permanent housing within 90 days. Our goal is to bring hope to the hopeless.

Interfaith Kitchen

The UU Interfaith Kitchen Team is chaired by Karen Wolf and Laurel Gregorian. 

UU prepares a meal a few times a year, usually for the months that have a 5th Thursday. A recipe is selected and shared with team members who do the cooking at home. They take the prepared  casserole or other hot dish to the new Service Center. The team then helps set up, serve, and clean up. Typically, approximately 100 people show up for dinner. If you are interested in helping out, please contact Karen or Laurel. 

(During the Covid-19 pandemic, the meals are being served as “to go” items, so the team is not actually serving.)
