Essential Services


a community that ensures all basic needs are provided 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. Essential services 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.
