Our partnership programs can help offset the costs of the utilities your family needs.
Our workforce development programs help individuals move toward financial stability by teaching them job-search and job-retention skills, as well as financial literacy.

Seniors and the Disabled
Our services for seniors aged 60+ and the permanently disabled are designed to keep you healthy and independent in your own home.
Sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin. Our case management services are designed to help you define your goals and find out what resources and programs are available to you.
Meet Mr. Charles King
Charles began working with Brothers United. Working with them has changed his stance on not only fatherhood, but on manhood as well.
“I look back and remember watching New Jack City. That sparked in me this idea that I owe back. I owe churches, I owe my mom, I owe Malcom. Now that’s my approach to life. So when I got a job at BU, that’s how I felt like I was paying back what I owed. By sharing my story. If 20 of them are in the streets doing illegal stuff, maybe only 2 or 3 of them catch it, but that’s still something. It’s an opportunity to pay back what I owe. And in my mind, that’s a lifelong debt.”
Empowering fathers to have stronger, healthier relationships with their families.
Brothers United supports men in their most important role – fatherhood. We help dads have a positive influence on their children’s lives by providing them with mentoring, financial guidance, and assistance finding a steady job.
