The Ubuntu Center for Peace, located within the Orr-Weathers housing complex in East St. Louis, is an oasis of peace and kindness, in an often violent community. With a focus on justice and peace, the Ubuntu Center is home to Join Hands. It is home to our programs, a second home for our families, and a community center for the neighborhood. We bring light, love, and hope to all who come through our doors. Coffee is on every morning and all are welcome.
