The First Church in Belmont, Massachusetts played an important role in the founding of the Unitarian Service Committee (now UUSC) and continues to be a champion of our work today. We owe much of our knowledge of USC’s history with First Church, along with the high level of support from that congregation, in large part to one person — Jim Landfried.

The earliest the matching funds are expected is in the Summer of 2019.
