UCP was formed in 2001 with the help of then Mayor Martin Burgraff at the request of the Halfway City Council as a 501C3 nonprofit community development organization.
In 2020 the board updated the vision and mission.
VISION: United Community Partners (UCP) is dedicated to the prosperity and advancement of Pine Valley and the Baker County Panhandle, a place rich with history, natural wonders, unique communities and creative, hard-working individuals.
MISSION: Our mission is to assist individuals and groups in carrying out projects that will be of economic and/or social benefit to our area’s communities.
United Community Partners is community development 501c3 organization in Baker County, Oregon serving the Pine-Eagle Community.
We encourage all Community members to participate at our meetings. A segment of each meeting after the minutes and treasure’s report is always reserved for any community member to introduce a project or idea or help coordinate efforts in Pine Valley. Call the board president if you would like us to add your project to the agenda or to discuss your project a bit before a meeting. There is no need to call in advance though, just come with your energy and ideas!
UCP Justice, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusiveness Statement
United Community Partners is committed to building community by supporting inclusive, citizen-led initiatives. UCP understands that systems of oppression and discrimination are interdependent, spanning all social categorizations such as race, class, gender, ability, religion, parental status, size, age, and sexual orientation. We work through an intersectional lens to provide assistance and access for all who apply for our support and seek our partnership.
This site is under current review (2021) and we hope to have it done by December 2021. We are working with volunteer staff and so must rely on their time available.
