Making A DifferenceOn-Site Distribution Center
One of the biggest factors that went into Urban Alliance’s decision to move to East Hartford was a need for functional warehouse space. Priority was placed on making a way to bring the amazing work done by World Vision to Connecticut (and all of New England). By providing this warehouse space, Urban Alliance is able to get real physical resources and supplies to programs, ministries, and churches that need them. It also allows World Vision to operate in ways that are different than most of the rest of the country – where most places would need to charge a membership or pickup fee to covert the costs of warehouse rental, staff hours for scheduling and stocking, and more, the UA Distribution Center can provide access to World Vision programs at no additional cost to our UA Network Partners.

A Special Partnership
The relationship between World Vision and Urban Alliance is a special one. Though we are clearly two separate organizations, we often feel like one staff – praying and serving together. We are thrilled that we can bless World Vision with a home base in CT, we are equally blessed by their work and programs as they equip the UA Network for good works.
