UU House Special Collection

Although Unitarian Universalist House in Germantown closed a few years ago, the UUH Outreach Program is continuing the long tradition of highly personalized service to older adults in the Northwest Philadelphia community. The Outreach Program is founded and rooted in the Unitarian Universalist principles, particularly in a profound respect for the inherent worth and dignity of every older person. The Outreach Board of Trustees is comprised predominantly of Unitarians. Outreach staff work directly with older adults in a variety of ways to help them remain independent in their own homes as long as possible. The Lycoming Fund provides the funding for the 240 active clients being served at present. Given today's economic realities, however, Outreach is seeking support for its Client Assistance Fund, which provides small grants to Outreach clients; every dollar raised goes directly to an older adult in need.
