We fight to break the cycle of poverty by connecting thousands of Valley residents to resources that end homelessness.
The red tape someone must navigate to break the cycle can make it seem like an impossible task. Even with the will to work hard, access and transportation to the proper resources may be a challenge. On any given day, thousands of people in our community are facing these challenges
Valley of the Sun United Way started Project Connect to bring together a broad range of vital health and human services to a single accessible location. These critical resources are provided at a different Valley location each month to broaden their reach and scope.
No Other Organization Brings Together as Many People to Fight Poverty in as Many Ways
