A plan to meet basic needs.
While issues such as poverty, homelessness and food security are very important, long before individuals and families fall into a crisis situation, there are most likely issues in education, income, and/or health that are inextricably linked.
United Way works to find ways to make the greatest impact on Racine County and creating solutions for the long term. By focusing on Building an Educated Workforce, United Way will address the root causes to many issues, which will in turn create a decreased need for basic needs services over time.
United Way continues to support the efforts of our various community partners that administer basic needs programs. Basic needs programs (food, clothing, shelter, etc.) serve our county’s most vulnerable residents by making sure they have adequate access to services that allow them to become stable and work towards self-sufficiency. Now and into the future, United Way will continue to support the efforts of our various community partners that administer basic needs programs.
