Please give as generously as you are able. Half of all funds raised will go
to at-risk populations served by UUSC partners and the other half of the
funds will support Unitarian Universalist congregations and members of those congregations most affected by the storm.
As the storm passes and recovery begins, UUSC will continue to get updates and work with partners to ensure their needs.

Walk to End Alzheimer's
Alzheimer’s disease is relentless. So are we! Members of Horizon gather with the entire community to walk to raise the awareness of all of those affected by Alzheimer's. Join our team for the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, September 30, at the Grandscape in The Colony. To donate or to sign up, click here.
Horizon Unitarian Universalist Church has supported a strong Alzheimer's/dementia ministry for over five years with three types of support groups. The first was an educational/support group for both persons with dementia and their care partners. Soon after this group was established, the cornerstone group, Candle Lighters, was begun as a safe place for people with a dementia diagnosis to gather weekly to share, support, create and have fun in a spirit of supported success. A care partner support group provides the third leg of the stool. All groups are open to the community. For more information, go to www.alz.org

A People of Welcome
Rev. Lora Brandis
"We bid you welcome, who enter this hall as a homecoming,
Who have found here room for your spirit. Who find in this people a family.
Whoever you are, whatever you are, Wherever you are on your journey,
We bid you welcome."
