The United Liberian Association of Bucks (ULAB), was founded in 1994 by a group of Liberian women as a support group for Liberians living in Lower Bucks County, Pennsylvania, during the heat of the civil war taking place in Liberia.
In 1998, ULAB expanded beyond just a support group due to the increased of Liberian immigrants and resettlement of Liberian refugees in Bucks County.
In 1999, ULAB registered with the State of Pennsylvania's Department of State as a nonprofit, nonpolitical, charitable, voluntary community based organization with the goals of meeting the social, economic, and educational needs of more than 3,000 Liberians residents in Bucks County.
ULAB continues to maintain a strong community presence and works with the Union of Liberians in the Americas (ULAA), the Catholic Social Services, Bucks County NAACP, State and Local governments, Bucks County School Districts, businesses, and other community based organizations.
The association works in collaboration with these organizations and agencies to inform them of needs of Liberians and the talent and resources it has to offer.
