Our work would not be possible without the work of our dedicated volunteers!!!

Because of this invaluable contribution, we’re eager to say a “Thank you volunteers! We salute you!” with a Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on Tuesday, April 25th.  If you have volunteered with UCAN in the past year, we’d for you to join us at 6:00 pm at Lions Park Shelter.
