Through the Community Grant Fund, United Way is able to allocate funds, volunteers, and resources to enable people in your community to have adequate housing, food security, financial security, family crisis, mental health services, and youth education. 

By creating a diverse mix of program types and target populations, the Community Grant Fund seeks solutions to critical needs arising from poverty. United Way is an opportunity for those in need to flourish, and a source for you to help others in your community rise up.
