Support our mission

Support what God is doing in East Van Buren County! Together we can do so much more.

There has never been a more urgent need for helping our neighbors in Van Buren County as now. Many families face the new year with rent payments, utility bills and grocery bills they are struggling to meet through no fault of their own, due to a worldwide pandemic.


United Christian Services is a place where families and individuals can turn to when in need. We provide relief for families and individuals facing emergencies, but we need your help to continue our work of providing food, clothing and financial assistance.

Please help us support our neighbors in need today. Please consider making a donation today. No gift is too small.

There are two ways to make your donation

How UCS is helping people in our community:

  • We help people in our community facing emergency situations such as utility shutoffs, evictions, rent deposits, some transportation problems, and much more.
  • We connect people with agencies and information that can equip them with support services.
  • We provide free fruit, vegetables, and bread twice a week for anyone in need.
  • We give away clothes for free: professional wear, men's, women's, and children's clothing.
  • We offer multiple courses, including financial and culinary classes, with the basis of creating a sustainable lifestyle.
  • We have established and grown a community garden which gives an opportunity for the community to help others in need.
Often, when other agencies can't help, we are there!
One never expects to face an emergency, but it can happen to anyone. Just one emergency, like a car breaking down, a medical emergency, or a house fire can derail a household's budget for months. Sadly, we see stories like this every day.

  • $25 pays for an application to a housing community for someone who is homeless 
  • $50 provides healthy, nutritional groceries for a family of four

  • $100 supplies essential household items for housefire victims
