Emergency Services

What We do in emergency situations


 

Why our mission matters

Natural disasters, job loss, loss of a loved one, illness, accidents, disabilities, family problems, victimization and the problems of growing up and growing old know no boundaries. People from all backgrounds benefit from services provided by United Way partner agencies.
  • A natural disaster can strike at any time.
  • There is an unmet demand for shelter capacity, including homelessness and domestic violence.
  • Elder abuse cases and child neglect have increased.

How

Emergency Services has a set funded level to ensure vital services are available to the community. United Way invests in disaster response and relief services, emergency housing such as shelters, and violence and crisis intervention support.

LIVE UNITED Story
I joined to fulfill my passion for Community Service "Joining Emerging Leaders is a great way to connect with the next generation of community leaders for the common goal of enhancing the Lehigh Valley. I joined the group not only to help fulfill my passion for community service, but to also grow personally and professionally. ELS has been able to provide the holistic experience I was looking for in a group. I highly encourage anyone looking for the same attributes as I was to check us out. The society is truly a one-of-a-kind experience in the Lehigh Valley." – Sean Linder, CFA
