United Way funding is helping us pay rent, mortgage, and utilities for our most vulnerable families in Tucson.
We are supporting families who are not qualifying for other assistance due to various requirements. We are seeing many requests from single parents struggling to support three or four children amid lost jobs and school closures.
With COVID funding from United Way, we have paused multiple evictions, recovered mortgage payments, and turned on cell phone and internet services for families in Sunnyside schools.
Thank you, United Way - you are #SunnysideStrong!"
– Kerri Lopez-Howell, Executive Director at Sunnyside Foundation
