Our June 5th community wide march and rally at MLK Jr. Park was a huge success. Thank you to all that participated and thank you to the thousands of residents who acknowledged our efforts along the way.  

Together we can when we take a stand

Who We Are

Here at Uniting and Healing through Hope of Monroe County, we know that recent circumstances within our community have driven the need to unify and provide a variety of supporting efforts for our residents. Sometimes all it takes to change is just a little support.

We are a group made up of Monroe County Legislators, City Council members, RPD officers, MCSD officers, many suburban police agencies, spiritual leaders from both the city and suburbs, many community organization leaders and dedicated volunteers.

Since our inception last year in 2020, we have been determined to make an impact. Last year we conducted our Thanksgiving Food Basket drive which supported nearly 2000 local families in need. Next was our highly successful blanket drive that took place during the Holiday Season that provided over 3000 warm blankets. to first responders and community members in need. Taking place during the Easter Holiday was our Easter Basket Food Drive and Distribution which provided hundreds of food baskets to our community members. Currently we are engaged in our most challenging mission to date and that is ending the violence on our streets. Our continuing community conversations, marches, rally's represent our efforts to involve or bring awareness to every member of our community that we will rise and defeat the senseless acts of violence once and for all.

So as you can see, the core of our efforts are to bring our organizations fresh ideas and passion to a range of community needs and outreach activities.
