UCAN is an organization that holds a high standard on accountability. We strive to hold our guests accountable for their progress, choices, and behavior while they stay at the shelter. We also respect any time a guest feels comfortable enough to speak up and be candid with us regarding our own areas of needed improvement. We know that accountability is a two-way street.

“Iron sharpens Iron, and one person sharpens another” – Proverbs 27:17. When we are willing to instruct (hold others accountable) as well as receive instruction (be held accountable) then both individuals involved in the relationship grow in their effectiveness to function in life.
