The lot of Pioneers of our Ukrainian National Home was not an easy one, but was fraught with many obstacles. In spite of differences in cultures and economic handicaps, the fore-fathers of our organization were able to rise to the occasion and reveal their sterling courage. To their noble attribute we pay tribute and draw inspiration from their determination to make a name and a place for themselves in their adopted land - this beloved country of ours. We who are their descendents know that their record of achievement will be of lasting glory to them and therefore, we dedicate this club to them.


We are a not-for-profit organization, interested in the custom and livelihood of the Ukrainian way. The leaders of the UNH are annually elected by full club members, and are entrusted with upkeep and success of not only our facilities, but also our Ukrainian integrity. Our staff consists of non-paid club members who generously volunteer their time to maintain and better our community.
