While we work to address the root causes of important community issues, United Way realizes that there are individuals in our region who need our support right now. Through the Community Human Service Partnership (CHSP), we work to improve housing and housing support services, food assistance programs, personal safety services and disaster response systems. Rarely are any of us prepared when a crisis hits- but when a crisis does occur, United Way is there, providing those in need with services and assistance to bring the stability they need to get back on track.
