Since 1969, United Community Ministries has served our community by empowering adults, children, and families to transform their lives. Founded by several faith-based groups and a handful of dedicated volunteers, the organization evolved from a small grassroots effort to now the only comprehensive human services nonprofit agency in southeastern Fairfax County serving more than 9,000 disadvantaged individuals annually.
We take lessons from the past to strategically amplify how we deliver our mission. In addition to providing human services, United Community Ministries is making purposeful steps toward addressing multigenerational poverty – inextricably linked to racial equity – and at the root of the concentration of poverty in our region. We seek and are positioned to serve as the lead change agent for racial equity, both through our community-based programs and on a broader level, creating a collective impact for systemic change within Fairfax County.
