Congratulations to our Winners!

We recently asked Covenant House Hollywood residents to write essays describing their personal definitions of victory.

Their responses were deeply heartfelt and very inspirational.

Unified Caring Association is delighted to award five first place scholarship winners awards of $333:

Dahiro Darur
Malcolm S. Henderson
Kayla Hatfield
Elijah Iniquez
Neil Massey

And our second place scholarship winners received awards of $100:

Anton Whetstone
Derrick Cooney
Xavier Craddock
Marcos Ivan Mendoza Henriquez
Special Johnson

We were deeply impressed by each wonderful essay that we received, so we also sent $50 thank you gifts to all other entrants!

Victory for all!

UCA created the writing essay to encourage the residents to tell us their personal definition of victory. The association is excited to award them for promoting a more caring world. Some of the notable quotes from scholarship winners include:


UCA is devoted to helping its members have a life filled with caring for themselves, family, friends, communities and the world at large. UCA has a mission called C.A.R.E., which is devoted to helping those who cannot speak for themselves or are not being heard. The C.A.R.E. mission teams with projects committed to helping children, animals, reforestation and the elders.
