I am privileged to be both a donor and staff leader with United Community Ministries. The depth and breadth of services in the community provide not only basic human needs, but build the skills necessary to successful lives. For more than 40 years, UCM has been not only the community's safety net, but essential in providing hope and solutions to thousands of families each and every year.
