Meeting basic needs provides an important foundation
United Way and our partners stabilize people in crisis by addressing needs essential to life, which include disaster assistance, food, safe shelter, housing and healthcare. Meeting these needs is critical to helping our most vulnerable neighbors on their journey to self-sufficiency. Three goals are to ensure that people in crisis: 1) have their immediate food needs met; 2) have their immediate housing needs met and/or receive access to affordable housing; and 3) have access to affordable healthcare services.
