Urban Dynamics Institute (UDI)

Urban Dynamics Institute has been serving the Waterbury, Connecticut area as a non-profit institution for over 100 years. Originally founded as The Pearl Street Neighborhood House, the agency's name was changed to Urban Dynamics Institute in the mid-1990s. Although originally a provider of community recreational services, UDI has expanded into offering other community outreach programs, including an African-American Scholarship, Affordable Housing Program, and Safe Streets Initiative. Our mission is to foster a strong sense of community between socially, economically and ethnically diverse groups in the Waterbury area.
