Essential Needs

Thousands of local families struggle to keep a roof over their heads and the bills paid. Too often they face impossible choices, like whether to buy food or keep the lights on. United Way funds agencies, collaborates with schools, and coordinates with all levels of government to meet the basic needs of the most vulnerable members of our community.
