University Community Social Services is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that depends on donations from people like you to continue our work. Despite our name, we are not affiliated with any university, nor are we affiliated with any religious organization. We are all-volunteer run, without a single employee, so 95 cents of every dollar you give goes towards providing meals and services to our guests.


Make your fully tax-deductible donation today.


As a reminder, many companies provide matching funds for charitable giving by their employees while others have programs that make contributions to charities with whom employees are involved. Please check with your employer so that they might consider making a donation to our cause.
