At UACS we offer programs for children who strive for better grades, youth who want to become strong leaders of tomorrow, women who are looking for a fresh start from an abusive situation, parents who find it difficult to reach their children, and seniors who want to live healthy and happy.
By lighting a LAMP you will help provide a child with individualized tutoring, literacy training, arts and craft and a safe space to dream big. For two days each week, children from ages 6 to 13 are provided with one-on-one guidance and assistance in subjects they are struggling with in school through our Arts, Literacy & Tutoring Club.
By lighting a LAMP you will help our beloved seniors fight the feelings of loneliness and isolation that affect their mental health. Each week, our Healthy, Active & Wise Seniors meet to dine and fellowship with each other, participate in activities to keep them fit, expand their knowledge and have fun. For those who can’t make the trek from their homes, we provide a listening ear and words of comfort through security checks and friendly visits.
By Lighting a LAMP you will help a woman find her voice, gain her confidence and find safety for herself and her child from an abusive situation. You may also help her partner understand the pain she and the children are going through and make changes that will keep the family together. We counsel women and their dependent children who are suffering the effects of domestic abuse. We also counsel men who acknowledge their role in the abuse.
By Lighting a LAMP you will help families stay together. We provide counselling for parents who find it difficult to cope with their children, providing them with the support they need to make positive choices and build positive relationships.
So we ask you to donate as little as $25 to light a LAMP and light up a life! How many LAMPs will you light? Join with us to help brighten our community.
It takes $25 to light a LAMP and you will be eligible for a tax receipt. However, we welcome any donation you make to our campaign and value your contribution to the work we do to uplift our community.
