Spotlight- People Making a Difference- United Way

Sunday, December 16, 2012
Today I'm happy to bring one of my favorite organizations to your attention- United Way.

My first 'grown up' job was through United Way funding, working with physically and mentally challenged adults.

I didn't think much more about them until I began my current job. When looking for support for community action I found United Way to be a very passionate and involved organization to work with. Not only have they helped us provide for workforce and educational training for our youth in Evanston, they are at the forefront of working on the issue of homelessness. I will talk about this issue in a later post, but it encompasses much more than our usual definition of homeless, and touches people you probably come in contact with every day who are at risk.

If you are looking for a place to begin volunteering this is a good place to start.
