People of Faith Helping Neighbors in Need
Based on the belief that every individual is worthy and can become a self-supporting and contributing member of our community, the mission of Uptown Faith Community Service Center (UFCSC) is:
To provide services to homeless, poor and needy persons in a manner that is respectful and inclusive of all individuals and all circumstances.
Thank you to all who participated in Uptown’s Oktoberfest Dinner and Silent Auction. The event was fun and successful.
Uptown Faith is a nonprofit community service center in North Park and is run by dedicated volunteers. Uptown provides services to over 1,700 homeless and very-low income persons per month through providing a mailing address, taking messages, giving information and referrals, emergency food distribution, hygiene kits, clothing, providing computer/internet access and help obtaining California IDs. Our clients age range is from 17 to 82 with an average age of 43 and 40% of them are female. The racial breakdown is 41% white, 34% black, 19% Hispanic, and the remaining 6% Asian and other. Homeless clients account for 60% of our clients; 50% of the clients have some form of disability and 12% are veterans. The Service Center is supported by a group of 11 community churches of several denominations, and contributions from individual donors.
