Emergency Needs

We help families through times of crisis.

Whether the crisis impacts the world like COVID, entire communities like the recent floods, or just one family, we assist with everything from transportation and rent to hygiene kits and other essentials. Last year over 5,000 families received emergency assistance through our HELP Center and other programs.

Your gift of $2,500 could provide one-time financial assistance to families who are struggling right now.

Food Access

Having enough food to eat is often taken for granted.

Right now, we are serving over 1,000 families each week through programs such as Fresh Connect and Bucks Knocks Out Hunger – almost twice as many as we served prior to COVID.

Your gift of $1,500 could provide breakfast essentials for more than 300 local families so they can have a strong start each day.

Education

Access to a quality education is an essential building block to a great life.

Last year, in addition to providing nearly $2 million in early education scholarships, we distributed nearly 1,500 books and 1,000 STEM kits to Pre-K children and their families in Bucks County.

Your gift of $1,000 could help close the opportunity gap by providing a three month Pre-K scholarship for a young child.

Housing & Homelessness

United Way responds to families facing homelessness and helps them overcome it.

Last year we served 389 people through the Street Outreach program. We played an essential role in helping them move into safe, affordable housing and ensuring they have what they need to make the space a home.

Your gift of $500 could provide one month of rental assistance to help a family get back on their feet.
