This fall, United Way of the Lewis and Clark Area is working more closely with organizations in our community that focus on homelessness! Each week, our partners meet at our office and discuss cases they are managing. This opens the door to collaborate and ensure that local families and individuals at risk of (or experiencing) homelessness are able to connect to opportunities to keep a roof over their heads! In just a month of this collaborative effort, two households have been placed in housing!
Partnerships are critical to making sure we identify all the programs and services available – but more importantly, they help us identify the gaps that exist between them. Identifying those gaps helps us to bridge them and create innovative solutions. We’re proud to work with so many great groups and individuals to tackle homelessness in our community and make sure everyone has a safe place to call home!
