About Us and What We Do
UMatter Organization, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Through community leadership and engagement, UMatter is proud to serve the Polk County community with an ultimate goal of building itself into the sought after Community Resource Center in its local area.
In 2010 UMatter debuted to the Polk County community as a conceptual idea to unify community engagement and support services for the regions vulnerable citizens. Since 2013, UMatter began serving foster, adoptive and kinship care families through its' Heart2Heart Support Group Program. Since then, additional programs including Love Luggage, Emperors Closet and STEM/STREAM Club have been launched to serve the various demographics of the Polk County population.
It is the commitment to education, family enrichment and outreach that drive the all-volunteer staff of UMatter. Polk County's community is hurting with over 18% of people under the Federal poverty line, greater than 65% of children receiving state subsidized school lunch meals and 16% of adults unable to read. Our Community needs help and we believe that at UMatter Organization, YOU matter, and we are thrilled to partner with the community as we seek to build programs to meet the diverse needs of the Polk County Community.
