Our Approach

Our Approach

Uniform Outreach prides itself on not being your standard non-profit organization.  We strive to find, develop, customize, and implement programs that rely on evidence-based practices as well as alternative approaches to delivering the help required to communities and individuals.

Our Story

We grew out of a belief that by providing services and support where it is needed, we will be making a long lasting contribution to the global community to which we all belong.  The team was brought together by a shared desire to identify the gaps in outreach programs and provide a uniform approach to bridging those gaps.
