How does your gift to United Way help people in crisis?
Part of our mission is to ensure that the basic necessities of life are available for those in need. When you give to United Way, you help veterans, foster children, homeless youth and adults, seniors who need food and more. Watch this video from Sue Krall, Executive Director of New Journey Community Outreach, as she shares how United Way investments helped one local man achieve employment and independence.
When you give to United Way, this is your impact in the area of Safety Net Services:
YOUR GIFT HELPS VETERANS THRIVE
When you give to United Way, you help veterans return to civilian life with dignity and much-needed supports. Your gift also provides critical transportation services to the VA Hospital for veterans who cannot drive themselves.
YOUR GIFT HELPS HOMELESS YOUTH
Every school district in Berks County has homeless youth in need of help. When older teens and young adults have a safe place to live and receive supportive services, they are more likely to graduate from high school and thrive as adults.
YOUR GIFT IMPROVES ACCESS TO FOOD
Seniors, families and individuals throughout Berks County continue to face hard choices, like whether to buy food or pay a utility bill. When you give to United Way, you help supply food pantries with nutritious foods and give people peace of mind.
Through our unique Community Wide Care approach, your gift helps children succeed in school, empowers families to become financially stable, promotes healthy lifestyles and helps those most in need. Everything we do is focused on Education, Health, Financial Stability and Safety Net Services. Together, we LIVE UNITED.
