SPOTLIGHT: New Program Recipient – Urban Village

The 501c3 non-profit organization, Urban Village Center Association of DC, was founded in 2003 to educate, empower, and train the low-income residents of the Urban Village Apartments and the surrounding environments in Columbia Heights. By supporting community activities such as computer lessons, literacy programs, and English learning programs, UVCA accomplishes their goal of enriching the lives of these people. As a part of the renovations of the apartment buildings, a multi-purpose room, a computer lab, and an outdoor community space, the people of UVCA are able to gather and work closely with these people.

Jose Gonzales who manages the Urban Village Senior program, took the initiative to introduce himself to the FEED director, inquired about the process, and single-handedly pursued the FEED intake process and was accepted into the program as a distributor.  We commend his personal interest and commitment to serving the needs of humanity
