Community Commitment

UBT News

Each quarter, Union Bank's Community Involvement Committee will highlight a local not-for-profit organization. This quarter, the spotlight is on Nonprofit Hub and a few of the nonprofit agencies they serve.


Nonprofit Hub

Nonprofit Hub works to inspire, educate, and encourage professionals in the nonprofit field so that their organizations might thrive. By providing learning opportunities based on marketing and branding expertise, their mission is to bolster the visibility for dozens of local nonprofits while fostering a culture of giving and volunteerism. Through online content such as webinars and podcasts, as well as conferences like Cause Camp, those hoping to promote and grow their nonprofit have an opportunity to utilize marketing and organizational leadership skills provided by Executive Director, Randy Hawthorne, and his staff.

Their downtown location provides a creative space for people from various nonprofits to meet, connect, and collaborate. Rentable office spaces and conference/meeting rooms offer a place for numerous organizations to call home while they develop and brand their nonprofit.

Providing online information and support to connect nonprofit organizations with volunteers and other nonprofit professionals insures that services in the area aren’t replicated, helping to provide the greatest possible impact for Lincoln and Lancaster county.

VolunteerLinc is Lincoln/Lancaster County’s network for local service.

Community Action Partnership

Through over 15 distinct programs and services, Community Action works to provide immediate assistance to people living in poverty in Lancaster and Saunders Counties, but more central to their mission – empowers people to achieve long-term economic stability. Case Managers empower participants to resolve individual and systemic barriers through a culturally respectful, family-focused approach that uses a household’s strengths as a foundation for progress.

Bridges to Hope

Bridges to Hope is a service to men and women soon to be or recently released from incarceration and are making the transition to a productive life outside of the cell. A first step back into the community requires a place to live and items to set up a home. Bridges to Hope provides basic household furnishings at no cost to the men and women they serve. Donated clothing assists these men and women by providing appropriate attire to seek and maintain jobs.

Hope all is well,

As the new Business & Community Partnerships Director with Computer C.O.R.E, I am seeking new partnerships and opportunities to grow in the community. The number of low income families in the U.S. now stands at 47.5 million and could reach 50 million in the next few years.11.2 % of Virginians live in poverty and at Computer C.O.R.E we believe we can help low-income adults acquire the skills needed to become successful.

Our mission at Computer C.O.R.E. is to help low-income adults acquire the technological and life skills they need to pursue their career aspirations. CORE provides basic computer skills and job search skills training to under- and unemployed adults in the Northern Virginia Region. Our six-month computer training course helps students conquer fears and learn computer basics: keyboarding; working with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint; using email and the Internet. We serve almost 200 students each year. After leaving CORE, most go on to entry level positions within corporations throughout Northern Virginia.

I am contacting you in case you weren’t aware of our programs and services for low-income adults. I would welcome the opportunity to tell you more about Computer CORE. We are having a graduation ceremony on June 13th and would welcome the local Union bank and Trust to attend and see the things we are doing in the community. We would also welcome you to attend our sessions with our students throughout the week. If you have anytime available to meet or to discuss Computer C.O.R.E further please let me know
