UCAN is dedicated to:

  • Empowering people,
  • Training leaders,
  • Building communities, and
  • Changing public policies

…through community organizing and community-driven economic development.

The mission of UCAN has remained the same throughout its history.  Specifically, UCAN offers assistance to those groups whose purpose is the same as UCAN’s – the building of powerful community organizations through which people solve problems and change structures that adversely affect their lives.
