Live United

Dear Friends,

This past year was a very challenging time for our community and country. But the challenges we faced also provided us with tremendous opportunities for growth. In a few weeks, we will conclude our fiscal year. It has been one of the most difficult in our 76-year history, but I’ve been continually reminded how resilient our staff, donors, and community partners are and how their passion is changing lives. Lives like those of Annalisa and her children.

“We are now living in our new apartment. Me and my two children are able to start our new chapter of life after three long months of being homeless and struggling. We are home and living happy. We can enjoy cooking, taking baths, and nice long walks around the apartment complex. We are forever grateful to United Way, thank you so much.

With hard work and faith anything is possible. As a single mom none of this would have been possible without your help and support.”

Annalisa’s story is just one of 52 households; representing 87 individuals, 22 children, 25 veterans and 21 seniors who now have permanent housing thanks to our housing program.

Thanks to donors like you, we can continue to bring oral health assessments to the schools through the Building Healthy Smiles Initiative, provide free tax return assistance through our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, and mobilize volunteers to assist nonprofits throughout our community when they need us most. Live heroic and give generously today.

In service,

Eric Harrison
