About The Up Center

The Up Center has served as a safety net for our community for over 125 years.  When we were founded, we ran an orphanage for abandoned children, provided coal to poor families to heat their homes, and gave shoes to children so they could walk to school.   Over the years we  have evolved. We no longer run an orphanage, but we’re providing foster care and adoption services for children and many other programs.

We serve over 10,000 people each year.   We do four things:  we protect children, strengthen families, empower people in crisis, and help those with disabilities live life as fully and independently as possible.  Our annual budget is over $12 million, and we serve the entire Hampton Roads region.”
