Support the Clean and Caring Capital Campaign
United Caring Services is participating in Giving Tuesday to share the importance and impact of its Clean and Caring Capital Campaign that is raising money to renovate our Day Shelter’s 25-year-old restrooms and showers. Our Day Shelter (drop-in center) provides many vital relief and restoration services, in partnership and collaboration with other local homeless service agencies, for people in our community.

Our Day Shelter is an essential, front-line program that serves more than 150 people every day. Thanks to the amazing support by forty individual donors and faith communities as well as the recent grant awards, we are only $5,000 away from our goal! If you miss Giving Tuesday, do not worry. Our Giving Tuesday campaign continues until December 5.

"Everyone deserves a clean, reliable, and safe place to go to address their basic needs."

Today on GivingTuesday, will you help us meet this goal so people can feel clean, be healthy, and live with dignity?
We only need $6,500 to reach our 2020 Matching Gift Campaign goal of $22,500. Embrace this year-end opportunity and feel the blessing of blessing others. Donate HERE. Thank you!
Thanks to the commitment and generosity of several supporters who love to make an impact, our community of caring is having a matching campaign for all gifts designated for regular shelter operation.
  • Your gift of $100 becomes $200!
This year, our goal is to raise (or exceed) $22,500 by thew year-end! This is $2,500 more than last year. We can do it.
White Flag 2020 - 2021

White flag is at CK Newsome Center this winter to provide the safe physical distancing needed during COVID-19. Given the average and peak numbers served last year and the impact of the pandemic, UCS is unable to utilize its Day Shelter for the program this year.

We'd like to thank the Pigeon Township Trustees Office, Mayor Lloyd Winnecke (for making the CK Newsome Center available), Timothy Weir with the Commission on Homelessness, Brian Holtz who is Director of the Evv Parks Department, the many diligent UCS Care Team Leaders and Members, and our wider community of advocates, donors, agencies and staff for making White Flag possible for people experiencing homelessness -- keeping them safe, warm, and alive during inclement weather. Fewer things are more basic and also so very important. Thank you.
