hhm header UCC.png

To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, we are highlighting Wisconsin-based organizations that work to enrich, uplift, and serve the Hispanic community.

This week, we want to highlight the United Community Center, which has been supporting families & strengthening traditions since 1970.

The United Community Center’s vision is an empowered and thriving Hispanic community where all achieve their fullest potential. They bring this vision to life with services ranging from education to community development to cultural arts. The UCC serves more than 15,000 people each year, benefitting individuals from 6 weeks to 103 years old.

UCC offers a variety of programs, which you can learn about on their website, but we wanted to focus on their older adult programs & resources.

Adult Day Center

UCC's Adult Day Center provides services designed to meet the needs of those with cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer's and other dementia, those with caregiver needs, and those with physical impairments. Their goal is to ensure all participants truly enjoy each day by offering a variety of opportunities for them to experience at their own pace.
