The fastest growing population of people experiencing homelessness and visiting food pantries are working families. Low wages, high cost of living, and the lack of educational opportunities all contribute to the epidemic of homelessness & hunger in our region. With your investment, United Way supports a variety of emergency and intervention programs that respond to such basic needs as housing, food, shelter, clothing, health, etc.
Here's a list of Our Partners answering the basic human needs of our community.
