Capital Fundraising for New Headquarters

UCAP has purchased our “New Headquarters” located at 737 61st Street in Fairmount Heights, Maryland. This historic property is a landmark in the community and was designed by a prominent Architect, William Sidney Pittman in 1911 and a resident of Fairmount Heights. By September 1911, the Board purchased the land for a school to be known as Fairmount Heights Elementary School, which opened in 1912. The Fairmount Heights school was the first to offer industrial training for blacks in Prince George’s County. The building served as the public school for Fairmount Heights until 1934. The property was then purchased by the Mount Zion Apostolic Faith Church.

The Fairmount Heights Elementary School has undergone significant changes in the last 60 years; however, it still reflects its original use and its important role in the formation and growth of the Fairmount Heights community. It exemplifies the social, educational, and historic heritage of the County.

UCAP will revitalize this building and create a viable community-based space that will serve the community and offer the supports to preserve the rich history of this building. Our core services as a Community Action Agency (CAA) will offer services to help this community to thrive and meet the needs of all citizens living in Prince George’s County. The space will be designed to offer legal services, affordable housing, food services, emergency shelter, employment, case management, and health services to help citizens become stable and self-sufficient. A Community Center will be erected to offer a meeting and recreational space for our seniors.

Our new space will continue to be the Community’s Historical Landmark and anchor for revitalizing and building up the neighborhood and the Fairmount Heights community. UCAP is embarking upon our Capital Campaign and requesting support to help with the renovations of this historic building. All donations are fully tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Please donate!
