This has been a stressful and difficult time, and when we learned about the funding, it was honestly such a relief. United Way is quickly allocating resources to organizations like ours working on the front lines. To hear from an existing funder saying we were receiving dollars automatically—no application needed—just demonstrated the level of trust we’ve built with United Way.

I am thankful to Greater Twin Cities United Way because otherwise we wouldn’t have the home we do today. I went through hard times, but I couldn’t give up because of my kids.

Our apartment is ours, and I’m much less stressed. I would tell others “don’t give up”—there are people out there who care and want to help.

Our model is housing first, and then we can work on other things. We welcome everyone, and we meet families where they are at today- no judgement.
