With your financial support, Ujamaa Place will stabilize and transform the lives of African American men ages 18-30, who are experiencing inequity at the intersection of race and poverty, helping them achieve brotherhood, stability, and personal success.

Ujamaa Place stabilizes the lives of the most marginalized population in our communities through culturally centric programming. Ujamaa Men enroll in the Theory of Transformation program within a community environment that addresses: 1) Stable housing, 2) Increased education, 3) Consistent employment, 4) Financial and emotional connection to family and children, and 5) No criminal activity. These programs empower the men to be productive members of society by taking full responsibility and care for their children and families.

“The best way to stop the problem of violent crime in the inner city is prevention and intervention in the lives of young Black men who most often are the victims and perpetrators of these crimes. Ujamaa Place is achieving this intervention and igniting personal transformation for the young men in the Ujamaa Community.” –  Retired State of Minnesota Commissioner of Public Safety, John Harrington (Spring 2009)

Your gift today will impact not only the lives of the young African American men we currently serve, but for years to come, their families and our entire communities. But such intervention and transformation can only occur with your help. Please join us today to make a difference in everyone’s tomorrow.

Due to the generosity of a donor all new or increased donations will be matched up to $25,000!
