Integrity House


Hope Village

UCC recently teamed up with Integrity House, one of New Jersey’s largest nonprofit providers of substance use disorder treatment, to help better serve guests at the newly established Hope Village II site in Newark. Officially opened earlier this year, Hope Village II, located 51-63 Elizabeth Ave., is a 20-bed “bridge housing community” that serves people in immediate need of shelter.

Cutting Through Violence: with our Community-based Violence Intervention Program

In the heart of the communities UCC serves, the battle against violence is waged daily. However, amidst the challenges, there shines a beacon of hope in the form of the UCC’s Youth, Family and Senior Services' Community-based Violence Intervention Program, which recently hosted a transformative "Cutting Through Violence" event. The event invited youth to not only be treated to fresh haircuts but also empowered them with essential tools to address and navigate through violence in their lives.
