Funding for EFSP and VITA
join the fight against funding cuts
emergency food and shelter program
Communities are stronger when people are healthy, able to receive a good education, and can get a job that provides for them and their families. The Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) assists the newly unemployed and working poor from falling into chronic homelessness and food insecurity.
Join us in asking Congress to continue to meaningfully invest in programs that support the well-being and economic security of our communities by protecting funding for EFSP.
Volunteer income tax assistance program
The whole community benefits when working people can turn their financial tightrope into a stable pathway to success. That’s why United Way focuses on lasting solutions that go beyond charity, because financially stable people are more likely to have access to quality healthcare, provide a good education for their children, and contribute to their local economies.
A key component of success in building financial stability is ensuring hardworking families secure and keep the tax credits they are eligible for through free, high-quality tax preparation and filing services.
