In the Greater Triangle, nearly 200,000 people were experiencing poverty before COVID-19 and more than 200,000 were experiencing hunger on a regular basis.

Those are just two examples.

With your support, United Way of the Greater Triangle invests in 85 nonprofit organizations that are providing the food, housing, education, workforce, and health support that our most vulnerable neighbors need to overcome poverty and increase their social mobility.

Nonprofits that receive funds from United Way form a safety net for families like the Joneses. They provide services as wide ranging as assistance with rent, treatment for mental health issues, groceries for families, and books for young children.

None of this is possible without supporters like you. Your generous donations have a real impact on the lives of local families. Thank you.

United Way of the Greater Triangle has launched a Rapid Response Fund to help with the impact of events like the COVID-19 pandemic. To learn more about that, click here.
