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.
Valley Assistance Services:

“We were recently contacted by a family of 10 struggling with COVID-19. After coming down with COVID-19, both the mother and father ended up in the hospital. Once they were released, both needed to quarantine for two weeks, disrupting their work and child care. Moreover, during that time, some of their eight children started to show symptoms as well. Luckily, none of the children seemed to experience severe symptoms, but they still needed to isolate. The mother has since returned to work, but the father is dealing with a slower recovery and is still at home. Right now, the entire family is living on the mother’s income. Valley Assistance Services is using United for Southern Arizona COVID-19 funds to help them pay their rent and connect them to other supports.”
