THE POWER IS IN YOUR HANDS
Last year, United Way of Central Massachusetts touched the lives of more than 66,000 people. Some of our highlights included:
- 303,000 nutritious meals-on-wheels were delivered to 2,206 homebound seniors;
- 1,954 women were able to safely leave a domestic violence situation and receive the support they needed to start over;
- 1,445 homeless individuals moved to stable housing with support services.
Over the next year, we estimate that even more people in central Massachusetts will need the services provided by United Way funded programs. For example, with 4,000 families living currently in shelters in Massachusetts we still have a lot of work to do. United Way funds programs that help these families find housing, as well as provide parents with job training, counseling, budgeting skills, and any other necessary support to stabilize them and their families.
Your donation helped us invest more than $5.4 million into central Massachusetts this past year. United Way supports programs that ensure kids grow up educated and healthy, ready to become adults that are thriving, contributing citizens, fully able to support their own families. Your gift, combined with that of others, makes a difference in the lives of thousands of individuals and families in our community.
