Urban Family Learning Centers

Urban Family Learning Centers

Urban Family Learning Centers (UFLC) are partnerships between BHITC and local congregations aimed at providing ministries and services at the local neighborhood level.  Over time, these community-centered efforts help expand the capacity of local congregations by meeting real  “urban life” needs at a grassroots level and bringing people into deeper relationship with God and one another.

UFLC locations:

  • Lakewood – Lakewood Baptist Church
  • Maple Heights – Hope Alliance Bible Church
  • Ohio City – Trinity Lutheran Church (affiliate site)
  • South Euclid – St. John Lutheran Church
  • West Park – The Hope Center

The UFLC suite of ministries (not all UFLC locations have all ministries):

  • Youth and Adult Tutoring and Literacy – Evening and after-school tutoring and homework help, including GED preparation support for adults, typically provided in one-on-one settings.
  • Summer Programs for Children – Week-long summer camps focused on improving reading levels and comprehension.
  • Financial Literacy Courses – Teaching the basics of home and financial management, based on principals of Christian stewardship.
  • Christmas Store – A ministry that supports parents and those raising children with the ability to purchase new holiday items and gifts at bargain prices.
