United Church Homes and Services (UCHS): Letting Our Light Shine

When you serve others, you often discover that the most important things you have to offer are not things. You uncover the full range of resources at your disposal - your time, presence, attention, and talents.  Serving others is a state of mind and heart.  Once this is recognized, we are inspired by new ways to shine our light on others.  The more we give the more illumination we receive.

United Church Homes and Services continues to shine their light on others.  The flame is carried out through mission, our team members, and those we serve.  For 47 years, United Church Homes and Services has engaged in opportunities that impact lives and offered service to others both within our walls and throughout the larger community.    Share the light!

“Ours is the responsibility to keep our lights bright for others to see and follow.” – Thomas S. Monson
