Social Justice At SWUU

SouthWest UU Church is actively engaged in the community.

Each UrbanHope_CWmonth we live our values at Urban Hope, located in a storefront in the near west side of Cleveland. We provide food, and a loving safe space for members of this neighborhood to gather in community.  Residents have said we always come with love in our hearts.
