Supporting Families & Strengthening Traditions Since 1970

The United Community Center began as an outreach program for local teenagers in the late 1960s. Located in the heart of Milwaukee's south side, the center sought to bring people together in a safe, supportive, and culturally aware space, a mission UCC continues to pursue to this day, at its Walker Square location. Now serving clients ages 6 weeks to 100+ years old, UCC provides programs for the entire family to assist and support a variety of needs.
