Welcome to Uptown

Uptown Faith Community Service Center

…provides aid and dignity to persons that are either homeless or at risk. Supplying post office boxes, food, clothing, computer access and other services, Uptown helps people with some of these essentials to keep people integrated into the social fabric. We are supported by 16 local churches in an ecumenical effort to help citizens who have fallen on hard times and need assistance to stay integrated in the community. To widen our outreach effort, we welcome support from all sectors: corporate, civic, faith community, individual.

Uptown Thrift Store

Uptown Thrift in the Hillcrest neighborhood supports the mission of the service center on 30th St. The store sells gently used goods and collectibles. Choice donations to the service center will be diverted to the thrift shop for the added benefit from sales of such goods.
