What is Adopt-a-Community Project?
Adopt-a-Community is an outreach project designed to improve the lives of low income, African American youth and families, one neighborhood at a time. UNC engages the community through consistent visibility in a targeted area, by bringing convenient access to resources, promoting family value systems including self-sufficiency and teaching healthy lifestyle habits.
Our activities include resource fairs, community clean ups, The School to Prison Pipeline project, Sons and Brothers Initiative, SOS (Stop The Violence, a Community Town Hall), cultural events (2016 Black History Super Expo, 2015 Juneteenth Festival) and business mixers supporting small businesses. UNC was recognized for our community outreach and service by leadership in the Senate, Assembly and the city of San Bernardino.
Now, UNC is expanding the Adopt-a-Community Project by implementing long-term, comprehensive supportive services for African American youth and families at the new Anne Shirrells Community Center (opening Summer 2016). These programs are designed to enrich the lives of youth and families by offering resources, skill training, cultural education, mentorship and academic support.
Our target area encompasses the neighborhoods surrounding the Community Center, as well as the majority of western San Bernardino.
