  • UD KIDS

    Our story began here and is rooted in the belief that every child deserves the same opportunities to be healthy, happy, and educated, regardless of their circumstances.

  • COMMUNITY ACCESSIBILITY

    By focusing on the specific needs of people in underserved communities, we can serve them best through targeted programming, designed to break generational poverty through access to greater opportunities.

  • MENTAL HEALTH

    We are driven to address the mental health crisis that exists in poor and underserved communities because we understand just how much more serious the stakes are due to lack of services, access to care, and the countless persons who have been caught up in the hamster wheel of the criminal justice system instead of receiving proper treatment and services.
