Black History Month

Services for the UnderServed (S:US) embraces diversity and works to advance social justice and racial equity. For more than 42 years, we have supported people and communities that have been marginalized, communities of color, communities impacted by poverty, people with developmental disabilities and their families, people with mental health and addiction challenges, and people with histories of incarceration. We recognize that everyone who comes to us for services experiences a unique set of challenges, often compounded by a chronic lack of opportunity, made worse in many instances by systemic societal injustices.
We are on the ground advancing a social justice agenda despite societal roadblocks, helping people change the narrative of their lives for the better. We do this by providing and supporting access to housing, employment, education, mental health care, and treatment and rehabilitation services. We create opportunities that generate permanent, positive change in the lives of thousands of our city’s most underserved individuals and families.
As we mark Black History Month we celebrate the struggles and accomplishments of the warriors of the civil rights movement whose labor and sacrifices have allowed so much of our work to be possible.
