At United Community, caring counselors reassured Michelle that assistance was available. We supported her when she was at her lowest. We gave her hope – as if she were a member of our family. We provided her with food and financial assistance so she could pay her overdue electric bill, fend off eviction, and get back on her feet financially.
Over the next few years, Michelle got a new job that she enjoyed, moved into a better neighborhood, and became involved in her community. Life kept improving. Michelle felt she finally had overcome poverty. She thought everything was perfect.
Until it wasn’t.
A short time ago, Michelle began to experience undiagnosed health issues that kept her in the hospital for several weeks. Without health insurance, she couldn’t afford to pay for treatment, let alone the special lab work needed to learn what was wrong. As the bills started to pile up, Michelle once again turned to United Community for help.
Although she felt defeated, United Community provided Michelle with assuring care and support. Within weeks, they helped her apply for Medicaid, which has allowed her to get the diagnosis and medical care she needs.
Families like Michelle’s that receive help from United Community seek a better life. Yet, sometimes, no matter how hard they try, they are often one missed paycheck, one major car repair, or one serious illness away from financial distress. This is why your generosity is so important. Your gift today could provide food for seniors living in mobile homes, teach parenting skills to teenage moms, or save the life of a single mother in need of better health care.
Every individual seeking assistance from United Community has unique challenges that seem impossible to overcome by themselves. Your support provides them reassurance that no matter what those challenges are – they don’t have to face them alone.
