United Community Centers (UCC) was founded by residents of local housing projects to organize East New York neighbors to struggle for a better community and higher quality of life. The settlement offers service programs and advocacy campaigns. These programs include pre-school and afterschool youth education, as well as health and HIV prevention. United Community Centers prints and distributes a bi-monthly newspaper. UCC is also involved in a number of street fairs, bike tours, runs and marches. Evening programs include Adult ESOL classes, citizenship training, basic education, and computer literacy.
