Community Charity Competition--Join Today !
Help us reach our 2018 goal of $12,500 to keep area families stable in their homes. Education and services, community connections, case management, and financial support are all part of of the puzzle. Will you fill in the missing pieces?
As we get closer to our goal, the pieces of the house will start to come together. Check back to see how our community is doing.
You want to contribute to your community, but you don’t know how. You’re concerned about families who are struggling, but you don’t have a lot of time to volunteer. You want to support our mission of addressing homelessness, but you’re busy and tired and have limited funds, and before you know it, your best intentions of making a difference in the lives of your neighbors have slipped away. At Uniquely Yours Stability Support, we hear this all the time. We are constantly be asked what our community can do to show their support for our mission. To help you help us set families on the road to permanent stability and independence we are introducing an exciting new concept:
