Urban Community Outreach is grateful to be able to continue offering modified services during the COVID-19 pandemic. we are still providing food and other services to our clients while maintaining safe social distancing, every Sunday from 1:30 to 3:30 at First Congregational Church, 241 Cedar Avenue.

Due to these modifications, we are currently not able to offer any volunteer opportunities.

We will provide further updates to our services and volunteer opportunities as conditions allow, so please check back here frequently. If you have any questions, please contact us at 562-582-1000.

We are a community who firmly believes in helping those in need and the less fortunate. Come join us.
