UV works with hundreds of children and families in Akron’s North Hill neighborhood, with a vision to transform our community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our multicultural neighborhood is beautifully diverse, yet it’s a challenged one: our families face brokenness in many ways, from generational poverty to cultural and language barriers.
Our work is to restore this community while building dignity, inspiring unity, empowering futures, and meeting holistic needs. Our programming focuses on Outreach (spreading the hope of the Gospel), Education (empowering children and families to reach their highest potentials), and Discipleship (equipping the next generation of leaders).
