EVERYONE DESERVES A SAFE PLACE TO CALL HOME

United Way volunteers at a completed home recovery site

Last year, 1,633 people were provided shelter through United Way supported programs.

In the Midlands, many families are still displaced after the 2015 floods damaged their homes. United Way is leading the long-term recovery effort, repairing 161 homes to date. United Way also fights for the 1,500 people experiencing homelessness on any given day. Living on the street costs them connections with family and friends and makes it hard for them to work or maintain good health. Leaving people on the street is also expensive for the community. People who are homeless are often left to use costly services like emergency health care and shelter. United Way provides housing and services that reduce the use of crisis care and improve people’s opportunities for a better life.
