UNITY IN THE COMMUNITY
Unity Economic Development Corporation (UEDC) was founded in 1868 in Brandywine, Maryland. UEDC was created as an outreach arm of the Union Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church helping clients gain control over finances. The mission of the organization is to provide “self-empowerment tools” that would give people a “hand up “rather than a “hand out.” UEDC is a nonprofit housing counseling agency that helps homeowners and prospective homeowners navigate the challenges of buying a home/owning a home, and whenever possible help them to avoid mortgage foreclosure.
UEDC provides one-on-one counseling, workshops, group counseling, and seminars designed to empower individuals to gain control of finances and to contribute to building a better community. Programs and services offered are financial stability, homeownership education, foreclosure intervention and prevention, and Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA).
