Safety Net (Basic Needs)

SAFETY NET (Basic Needs):
 
Safety Net is at the core of our work. Safety Net funding supports members of our community in immediate crisis to stabilize them and provide a foundation for future success. It includes food, disaster relief, crisis intervention, emergency shelter, and more.
 

Funded partners working to help the most vulnerable establish a safety net for the future:

  • American Red Cross - Disaster Services
  • Volunteers of America - Crossroads Shelter
  • Salvation Army - (Emergency Services)
  • Safe Harbour - Shelter & Outreach Services
  • Kinship - Supervised Visitations

To accomplish this goal of stability, United Way of Erie County funds programs that are working in one or more of these critical areas:

  1. FOOD
  2. SHELTER
  3. PROTECTIVE SERVICES
  4. CRISIS INTERVENTION
