WE FIGHT STREET HOMELESSNESS
There is much work to be done in Knoxville to decrease the number of street homeless. The United Way of Greater Knoxville is proud to work with local agencies and programs designed to provide care for those in need, to get them back on their feet.
What does United Way do to help with homelessness?
We help people by raising funds and supporting programs that provide solutions here in Knoxville for street homelessness. Those programs include the Community Coalition Against Human Trafficking, Cerebral Palsy Housing Corporation, Family Promise of Knoxville and Southeastern Housing Foundation. Although these 501(C)3 organizations also raise funds individually, the United Way is responsible for providing funding, which represents a portion of their operational budgets, allowing them to better serve those in our community in need of help.
How do I know that my donation will help people in Knoxville?
United Way of Greater Knoxville raises money to meet the needs of our community. The money that is raised here, stays here, in Knoxville.
How can I help?
If you would like to assist in providing crucial care for people in our community suffering from homelessness and further the cause of the United Way, you can either DONATE or VOLUNTEER. Any donation of any size is helpful, and even the smallest donations add up. And if you’re more interested in providing your time, the United Way is always in need of caring individuals to help us fulfill our mission.
