Centro de la Comunidad Unida/United Community Center (UCC) provides programs to Hispanics and near south side residents of all ages in the areas of education, cultural arts, recreation, community development and health and human services. UCC helps people achieve their potential by focusing on cultural heritage as a means of strengthening personal development.
Steady, thoughtful program and facilities growth has been one of UCC’s greatest accomplishments. While providing a dependable source of support for generations of south side families, UCC has carefully expanded its mission and capacity. Established in 1970 as a youth recreation center, UCC has developed many program components in response to important community needs.
