Building Better Community Since 1974
United Crescent Hill Ministries builds compassionate community by providing programs for education, emergency assistance, health, wellness, and social activities.
United Crescent Hill Ministries (UCHM) is a community ministry sponsored by 19 churches/religious institutions, businesses, and individuals within Crescent Hill, Clifton, Clifton Heights, and Butchertown for the purpose of providing vital social services to these communities and beyond.
UCHM was formed after the devastating tornado of 1974, when churches who helped provide services during the tornado chose to continue to work together in developing other needed community programs for the neighborhood. This outreach is reflected in our mission statement: “Serving Our Neighbors ~ Building Better Community”. UCHM’s services have grown to include programming that serves the wider Louisville Metro area, including our youth and senior programs.
UCHM serves approximately 3,500 individuals with a range of programs that includes: emergency financial and food assistance, youth programming, health prevention services, senior citizen nutrition program and Meals on Wheels, senior citizen activities, community development and organizing, ecumenical activities, outreach, referral and advocacy. UCHM services are provided with the help of 350 volunteers, two full-time staff, and two part-time staff.
