"I love it because it serves the community. Even if you're not an adult or a senior, there are programs that you can use to educate yourself. Once you get involved, you want to stay."

Welcome To The United Community Centers
The United Community Centers (UCC) is a multi-service, intergenerational, community-based organization that provides services and support to residents of East New York, Brooklyn. For over 50 years, we've helped foster social change, worked with neighbors to address community concerns, and provided services to help make East New York a better, healthier place to live.
On October 18th, UCC will celebrate 60 years of working for a stronger East New York. We are incredibly proud that we have been able to sustain our work for 60 years, and grateful for the support of the community that has made this possible.
We need your continued support to guarantee that our work will go on for the next 60 years and beyond. We are seeing an increase in large nonprofits from outside our community moving here to run programs and compete with us for grants. To keep succeeding, we need each member of our community to invest whatever they can to support us.
That’s why we’re launching “60 For 60”, a campaign to find 60 new supporters to make a monthly donation of $5 or more to UCC. If 60 people will donate $5 a month (or $60 a year), that gives us another $3600 to support our staff and programs.
Will you become a UCC Monthly Sustainer today?
We’ll be honoring all our “60 for 60” Monthly Sustainers on our website, social media and at our event.
If you’d prefer to remain anonymous make sure to let us know when you donate!
On Saturday, October 18th, from 6-10PM, members of the UCC community from all generations are invited to join us here at the center (613 New Lots Avenue) to celebrate 60 years of working for a stronger East New York.
We’ll have affordable food and drinks that celebrate the cultural diversity of our neighborhood, a dance party in the community room, children’s activities, a photobooth, and more!
We just got our new Protecting The East T-shirts!! And we look GOOD.
And just in time. Our outreach and education team distributed more than 100,000 condoms so far in 2014. Look for us this summer. We'll be everywhere, sporting our shirts and looking to distribute another 50,000 condoms this summer.
We recently had our Celebration of Struggle, an annual event where we recognize and commemorate the people and groups that have helped to change our world. Here are some photos of our children from the event.
Protecting The East spent the morning with partners at Brownsville Multi-service Family Health Center and World Academy of Total Community Health (WATCH) High School to participate in WATCH's high school career day and recruit for our new cycle of Peer Educator Interns!!
