United For Southern Arizona
COVID-19 Fund Community Impact
As the pandemic stretches on, now more than ever before our community's big challenges call for big solutions. In the face of these challenges, your United Way continues to provide emergency funding for community members through the United for Southern Arizona COVID-19 Fund. Funds raised are used to help local individuals and families in crisis due to COVID-19. This week as you read the stories below, remember that Tucson needs you to GIVE BIG and GIVE UNITED.
Community Story Update
Each week we select a story from a member of the community being directly impacted by the United for Southern Arizona COVID-19 Fund.
United Way Family Support Alliance:

“One of our home visitation partner programs, Child and Family Resources Healthy Families, is working with a single mother of two. The family initially moved here from out of state with the children’s father, but he has since gone back to New York and they have no other family in the area for support. This mother works at a childcare center, but the facility is currently closed due to positive COVID tests. Her work schedule has been unpredictable, and it has also been challenging to manage care for her children, including one son who has Autism. Our home visitation staff are now connecting this family with other resources, such as disability support to help with care for her son. Rental assistance from the United Way COVID-19 fund will help this family stay housed until the mother can return to work.”
