Because of your donations, the 2-1-1 NorCal referral system has answered 7,183 calls in Shasta, Tehama, and Siskiyou Counties so far.
This 24-hour text, call, and web service connects community members to critical resources they need. You helped people receive assistance with basic needs, support for children, youth, and families, physical and mental health resources, employment support, elder and disabilities support, disaster relief, and so much more! We thank you for assisting us in running this incredible service.
Food Deliveries through DoorDash
With your support, our DoorDash Program continues to thrive! We have delivered over 3,315 grocery deliveries in 2022 by partnering with local food pantries and drivers.
Equity and Inclusion
Thanks to your generous support, $100,000 was granted to 16 non-profits in the North State to advance racial and social equity.
Thank you for standing with our mission to promote equity in health, education, financial wellness, and disaster recovery for ALL people in Northern California!
Because of the generosity of our donors, we were able to support innovative strategies for addressing homelessness throughout our region. In 2022, we assisted as the fiscal agent for Project Homeless Connect (PHC), a convening of local service providers working to address the needs of the unhoused population in Northern California.
You helped provide essential services such as medical, dental, optical, and hygiene services, health care enrollment assistance, behavioral health resources, housing, education, and employment resources, and so much more!
At PHC this year, around 400 guests and 80 of their animal companions were served, with 240 vaccines served to animals. We look forward to furthering our initiatives in homelessness in 2023 with your help!
At UWNC, we look at the big picture. We address where resources are lacking in our communities and step in to see positive change.
There is still time to make a difference in 2022! Please consider a donation today, and help demonstrate what it means to LIVE UNITED.
We are so grateful for your continued support of our work! We look forward to continuing our fight for the stability of every community member in 2023.
