Supported older adults through activities & services
UUH Outreach was created from the merger of the Unitarian Universalist House (UUH) and Lycoming House, and it flourished under the guidance of founding Executive Director Mary J. Fallon.
UUH and Lycoming House both agreed that this unique program concept was a fitting way to expand their missions to support older adults in Northwest Philadelphia.
From modest beginnings providing heat relief funding and sponsoring on-campus public events, UUH Outreach has become an integral part of the aging service system in Northwest Philadelphia.
