helping communities recover

It’s in times of need that we’re reminded of the full impact of a community that’s united.

Natural and man-made crises are becoming the new normal, unfortunately. In response, United Way helps communities prepare for and respond to disasters in real time. Our network is uniquely positioned to provide on-the-ground disaster response, including raising funds; providing resources like food, water and shelter; mobilizing volunteers; and engaging local partners to ensure community stability. United Way is also proud to partner with the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Hands On Nashville and many others who are helping with immediate relief.

During times of crisis and need, United Way’s network and partners step up to help rebuild lives and strengthen communities. We appreciate that support, and want to thank everyone who has helped—and continues to help—communities respond, recover, reimagine and rebuild.
