United Way and our community partners have set a goal: end family homelessness by 2025.

“We know that many families in our community are one missed rent or mortgage payment away from homelessness,” said United Way President & CEO Amy Lindner. “Having a place to call home is the foundation of a healthy and successful life.

We are calling the initiative Safe & Stable Homes: Ending Family Homelessness. We will continue their work in services like warming rooms and emergency shelters, but will expand the focus to homelessness prevention for families.

Today on the podcast, we hear more about this new initiative and about the issue of family homelessness in our community. We also talk to the 2019 United Way Campaign Co-chairs Mike Flynn, First Business Bank; Cecelia Gore, Brewers Community Foundation; Blake Moret, Rockwell Automation; and George Oliver, Johnson Controls.

You can get involved by giving through a workplace giving campaign or a direct personal contribution, advocating for lasting change by sharing your voice on United Way’s social media platforms, or by signing up to volunteer as part of a group or as an individual.
