Chaldean American Ladies of Charity

A nonprofit organization

The Chaldean American Ladies of Charity (CALC) was formed in 1961 when 20 women sought to support families in need. The founders’ legacy provided the foundation of CALC’s mission today: to provide programs that guide, support, and empower individuals to achieve self-sufficiency with dignity and hope.  

CALC has grown from an all-volunteer agency into a robust organization providing wrap-around services. In 2016, the Board adopted the name United Community Family Services (UCFS) to portray an organization supporting the community as a whole. Today, UCFS continues to empower its Clients on their path to self-sufficiency with dignity and hope. 

United Community Family Services is a community-based, community-led organization providing wrap-around supportive services for Clients with low- to moderate-income annually, primarily refugees and immigrants, empowering them on their path to self-sufficiency with dignity. 

Through personalized support, UCFS offers in-house programs such as citizenship and integration, afterschool tutoring, summer youth sports, nutrition education, maternal health education, elderly refugee, and life skills programs.  UCFS also provides employment services, including re-credentialing, resume preparation, and job placement assistance; individualized one-on-one financial coaching; translation and interpretation; healthcare navigation; benefits application assistance; and more. Utilizing its deep understanding of the community's needs, UCFS guides over 10,000 individuals every year through unique challenges and empowers them to achieve their goals and become self-sustaining.
