Meeting People's Basic Needs
United Way is committed to meeting the basic needs of the most vulnerable in our community. Together, in 2012 we invested $4.3 million in programs to help people meet their basic needs. We focus on:
- Ending hunger in King County for men, women, families and kids.
- Connecting people to housing and benefits, giving them the support they need to be independent and successful.
- Increasing people's financial stability by linking families to tax credits, jobs and programs that will help them save for the future
- Connecting families to resources through the 2-1-1 community information line
