UPT in the time of Covid-19...

We have weathered over 180 days of the health crisis in our country. Our students and their families continue to need support to ensure they have food and supplies as NJ moves back to work. Since this is an ever changing environment, at UPT we are adjusting our sails as we go! We are grateful for the amazing support we have received from our community! 

Your support and prayers have meant that UPT has kept our doors open, virtually, for our students and our StreetLeader Team since March. We were able to complete our 2019-2020 AfterSchool Program, run a successful Virtual SummerCamp and now head into 2020-2021 AfterSchool Program which will begin in a virtual format. 

Our donors, volunteers and staff has been nothing less than spectacular in making everything work to make sure the children, teens and families are able to receive academic support, emotional support and in-kind support.

In a time where everything could have fallen apart, so many folks stepped up to ensure UPT was standing on a firm foundation, both financial and spiritual. Because of this tremendous gift of time, talent and treasure, we move into our 10th year of service 2011-2021. 

Jesus gives us guidance each day, as shared in the gospel of Matthew:

36 “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 37 He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

We remain grateful for all who heed this call to love and service in this time of need.
