PROGRAMS

Through our basic needs program, including food pantry, clothing drives, support and community outreach, we are helping people access the resources they and their families need to survive.

Visit our food pantry on Mondays and Wednesdays

from 12pm-2pm.

*Please bring ID for your first time*

 

Volunteers needed for our food pantry, truck deliveries, or helping fill grocery bags.

EDUCATION

Without a GED, many clients struggle to find jobs that keep their families above the poverty line. We offer free GED classes, literacy classes, computer classes, and ESL to our students.

Sign up for classes by calling, emailing or stopping in. See registration form for available classes.  All classes are free and all are welcome.

Volunteer tutors needed!

CAREERLINK

Everyone needs someone to have their back. Our CareerLink program helps students not only find jobs but also launch their new career by teaching them computer skills, training and preparing them for interviews. CareerLink also allows for students who have graduated from the program to get paid internships with local businesses.

Sign up  for our CareerLink program, taught by Tameeca Russell, and get trained for success. Call or register online.

Volunteers needed! Also, you can recommend your  company to become a corporate partner.

Uplift

UMMA Uplift offers the respectful housing each family deserves. We purchase and develop homes in the Lake County area that help families experience one of the most basic qualities of the American dream, while we continuously help them along their path to a better quality of life. We currently have 3 homes across lake county and purchase a home a year. 

 Stay up to date on our most recent home purchases and open houses on our Facebook page.
