About Us

Uniting Our Youth, Inc. (UOY) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing multiple support programs for inner city youth. We are proud to partner with DC Housing Auhority to bring programs to residents at two housing sites Ledroit Park and Langston Dwelling

The organization’s programs forms partnerships with the community, local schools and juvenile court systems. Our goal is to foster a commitment to young people that will promote pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills and re-assert a sense of hope in the future. Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be re-established that will give youth the commitment to follow through on a path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
