Basic Needs

Imagine a community that helps ensure basic needs are met so that residents are able to strive toward a better life.

United Way of Racine County understands that crisis, hunger, and homelessness can happen at any time, to anyone. Basic needs programs serve our community's most vulnerable residents by ensuring they have adequate access to services that allow them to become stable and work towards self-sufficiency.
