United Citizens Foundation, Inc (UCF) is a non-profit organization, whose purpose is to act responsibly and to be responsive to the needs of our community. We establish programs for many underprivileged and under-served families who reside in the Las Vegas area.
We have been very successful in conducting and coordinating many different types of community events, such as; free annual comprehensive health fair, distribution of food through partnerships, toy drive donations, and blood and clothing drives. We also sponsored families faced with a wide variety of severe challenges. Our sponsorship of families programs helped to alleviate some of the strain and stress by providing children and struggling families with basic necessities. We have conducted fundraising and events for very important community matters such as human trafficking and raising money for the fallen officers.
Presently, we are providing mental and behavioral health services to the students located on the Valley High School campus. The community based services offered, can be accessed by the students whenever he/she is experiencing a crisis. Students undergoing a mental health emergency such as suicidal ideation, behavioral issues, parent/child conflict, difficulty adjusting to peer relational issues such as bullying, are supported and addressed by a licensed therapist. Our goal is to reach as many students as possible and assist with any issues, stressors, or anxieties and to provide them with positive influence and guidance from a trained and caring adult.
Our objective is to provide mental and behavioral health services to all Clark County School District students, and to one day be available onsite at every high school campus. As our organization grows we continue to develop new programs to service the community. UCF is a volunteer led, non-profit organization, which means all funds are received via grants and/or donations which support our programs. We strive to make a difference and to serve our community one child at a time.
