An Investment You Can Trust

Founded in 1940 as a rescue mission to support Jews and political dissidents fleeing the Nazis, UUSC has more than eight decades of experience responding to humanitarian crises, advancing equitable relief in the wake of natural disasters, and uplifting grassroots movements for human rights and social justice around the world. 

We have a proven track record of collaborating with directly impacted communities to not only provide for immediate needs like food, shelter, and legal aid – but also address structural injustice, demand redress and accountability, and advance long-term change. We conduct regular impact assessments of our programs to ensure efficiency and success, and we have the highest possible rating from Charity Navigator.
