Our mission is Uniting People with Opportunities:
Our approach is holistic and generational. As the only Community Action Agency serving the residents of Washington, DC, we’ve touched thousands of lives over the last 50 years. We offer more than 30 programs and human services. We help our customers get a job; learn a skill, find and stay in affordable housing. We teach financial literacy, offer early learning and adult education, help send high school students to college and keep our seniors physically and mentally active.
From newborn babies to our most senior adults, when you’re a part of the UPO family, we wrap our arms around you and are with you every step of the way.
