Our History

UCCAC was incorporated in 1965 and received an initial planning and development grant in the spring of 1966. For the first time agencies and community leaders were involved in the planning as were community residents who were to receive the services.

The original mandate which still holds true to this day was to provide resources and services which promote people’s dignity and self-sufficiency.

Through the last 55 years, UCCAC continues to implement the philosophy of self-help; a “a hand up, not a hand out” through practical, timely, and innovative programs, and services that emphasize and develop problem solving skills for people.
