Donating to United Way of Monroe County helps make a direct difference in the lives of people in need, people like Susan. She has lived in Bloomington for decades. She graduated from IU and is an active volunteer. Just as her kids were leaving the nest, a medical emergency arose that forced her to stop working. She was forced to apply for Disability Benefits and make the decision to leave her home to search for something more manageable. However, she found herself struggling to find affordable housing.
The deep appreciation she's held for this community was shaken as she attempted to navigate the process of rebuilding her life. "This town looks different to me now," she said. "Potentially being homeless is scary."
Your donation helps rebuild lives like Susan's and rebuilds a resilient community where friends and neighbors and weather life's challenges and thrive. Your support assures that our community develops more affordable housing, a strong food security system, and accessible healthcare. United Way brings together partners and works collaboratively on these tough issues, laying out roadmaps for action well into the future.
