What We Are:

U Care, Incorporated is a private non-profit corporation, which advocates inclusively on behalf of victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse in Sampson County, and other surrounding counties in North Carolina.

How we began:

U Care, Inc. was developed by several community leaders of Sampson County who responded to the needs of Sampson County's victims of Domestic Violence when they opened its Emergency Shelter on June 23, 1997. Since then we have grown into a comprehensive violence intervention program for the victims, the abusers, and their families.

The shelter currently houses domestic violence victims and their families, but the corporation also has comprehensive programs such as a court-mandated batterer's program, a displaced homemakers program, court advocacy, anger management, rape and sexual assault interventions, and other programs all focused on assisting those people who are currently in or who have been in an abusive relationship.
