Our Purpose/Mission

Our Mission Statement

The purpose of United Ministries is to unite as Christians to assist families by establishing a comprehensive system of response to the emergency needs of persons in Southern Kenton County and Boone County.

Our Philosophy

As workers and volunteers, we are here to serve: the individuals and families who request our services, the people with whom we work, those who donate to United Ministries, and the community at large. We recognize individual uniqueness and human dignity and respect religious, cultural, social, and economic differences. We respect all of these people and qualities. These attitudes are reflected in our day-to-day encounters with one another and assist us in treating all with charity, concern, and kindness.

Population Served

The Area We Serve

A Christ-based ministry, United Ministries serves individuals and families residing in Southern Kenton County and all of Boone County (excluding Covington & Latonia).

The People We Serve

United Ministries' statistics verify that the majority (80%) of our clients are "the working poor." Two-thirds of these clients have only a basic high school education or GED, and earn an average of less than $1000/month at entry-level positions (they meet the federal guidelines of poverty). Many of our clients frequently struggle to maintain their basic necessities (i.e., housing, food, clothing, etc) and are ineligible for other types of assistance. Without United Ministries' assistance, many of these families are in jeopardy of having their utilities shut off and some even lose their homes.
