For nearly 200 years, the UU Urban Ministry has been working side-by-side with under-served urban communities to create opportunities and instill hope for a brighter future. The UU Urban Ministry provides academic and enrichment programming for children and youth; emergency shelter for individuals and families fleeing from domestic violence; subsidized housing for young women, including transitional housing for those ready to leave shelter; and volunteer-based capacity-building services for Roxbury-serving nonprofits.
Our ministry is rooted in direct experience and service with those in Boston who are struggling for better lives. We seek to build bridges of understanding and mutuality so that people in various economic circumstances can work together to effect change. Our goal is to create a human community that is peaceful and just.
Although based on the Unitarian Universalist principles of justice, equity and compassion, all UU Urban Ministry programs are non-sectarian.
Mission Statement: The Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry unites communities and transforms individuals through education, service, and advocacy. We engage communities and congregations in social action and change with programs that empower youth and adults to realize their full potential.
