About Us

Our logo and name have changed but our commitment to offering a “hand up, not a handout” has remained the same. Serving the Treasure Coast since 2003, United Against Poverty, formerly Harvest Food and Outreach Center, has been making a difference in the lives of our neighbors who don’t earn enough to meet their basic needs; people who face the day to day challenges of survival in our community.

What We Offer

We offer various programs for the people that we serve and there are plenty of opportunities for our community to get involved with our mission. We provide workshops through our Life Enrichment Center that teach important life skills such as good nutrition, how to make and live on a budget, job training and relationship building. Our Cost Share Grocery Program, gives members access to affordable food on a daily basis. The Crisis Relief Program provides immediate assistance to those who are on the verge of becoming homeless or helpless. Our Work Preparedness offers training and instruction to those who are unemployed or under employed. The on site Thrift Store offers low cost clothing and household items.
