Mission Statment


Poverty continues to have a profound impact on the lives of American families. The citizens of Prince George’s County are not exempt from the debilitating effects of inadequate resources. Studies show that during the past months over four million Americans experienced homelessness. The number of hungry and homeless people is rapidly growing as a result of job layoffs, lack of affordable housing, home foreclosures, lack of government (Federal, state and local) funding, and the persistent rise in food and gas prices (including oil to heat homes). This unfortunate trend has increased the demand for services from organizations like UCAP.
