CAC Resilient Families
CAC Resilient Families will assist low-income families who have encountered a crisis and are at risk of becoming unstable or losing their housing. We will assist families with assessing their needs and identifying barriers to housing stability to help families achieve short- and long-term goals related to maintaining their housing and increasing their household income. Long term case management with a two-generation approach will be provided to 40+ families throughout the next year.
Mobile Meals provides food and hope to home-bound seniors age 60 and older in Knox County. Each weekday over 100 volunteers delivers nutritious meals to over 1150 seniors who are unable to prepare meals and have no one to prepare meals for them. Equally as important as the meal, the daily safety check provides much needed peace of mind to allow our local homebound seniors to remain safely in their homes.
The Youth WINS program will assist unaccompanied homeless youth ages 18-21 who are referred to our program from Knox County Schools or through outreach efforts throughout Knox County. We will assess the individual needs of these youth; and identify barriers to housing stability and the need for case management if it is the appropriate tool to help them achieve short- and long-term goals and outcomes related to maintaining their housing, continuing their education, and increasing their self- sufficiency.
“Meal delivery is only a piece of what the senior needs help with, and United Way helps us find other agencies and other partners to help meet those other needs.”
Manager, Mobile Meals Program
