Since 1991, the UCS has been an essential service and benefit to our community. Our day shelter has been a reliable foundation for thousands of people over the years and it continues to make a life-changing difference today. All people deserve a clean and caring place to address their basic needs as they overcome challenges, build relationships, and pursue a healthier and hope-filled life.
The day shelter restroom and shower improvement project will cost approximately $126,500 and we are seeking to raise $40,000 as part of a capital campaign. We will also seek discounts, deals, and in-kind donations with contractors and materials suppliers. We are asking our individual, corporate, and faith community partners, as a sign of your commitment to these essential services and the people we serve to raise $40,000 (or more) for this project.

These desperately needed improvements (see layout above) will help UCS provide a higher quality of care in a more compassionate and sustainable way. Surpassing the campaign goal will allow us to provide a greater match to the other funding sources we are pursuing increasing the quality of equipment/materials (fixture upgrade) we are able to use and help us improve the donation processing area in the basement below (bonus).

Here are a few visual examples of what the new, more appropriate, durable, and safer units we will install – they may be ceramic or stainless steel – as well an example of an epoxy style non-tile, no-slip floor.
