community involvement

UKS is immensely proud of its long history of support of numerous religious, cultural, civic, political and charitable organizations throughout Connecticut.  In addition to financial support, our principals, associates and staff are active members of many of these organizations, often devoting time, energy, enthusiasm, and expertise. 

Below is a listing of a few of the organizations that we support:

Read to Grow:  Since its founding in 2000, R2G has distributed over 100,000 new and gently-used books to children throughout Connecticut.

My Sisters' Place:  Formed in Hartford in 1982, MSP provides meaningful support and development opportunities for approximately 600 homeless mothers and children each year.

Gifts of Love:  GoL works to meet the basic needs of individuals and families in the Greater Hartford area experiencing temporary financial crisis so they can achieve or maintain self-sufficiency.

Family Centered Services of Connecticut (fka: Coordinating Council for Children in Crisis, Inc).:  FCSCT’s mission is to prevent child abuse, neglect, and victimization through home visiting, parenting education, counseling and advocacy.

The Lutz Children's Museum:  Located in Manchester, LCM offers hands-on exhibits, live animals, classes, concerts, trips and special events for children aged two to ten.
