Supporting People in Crisis

Our Safety Net Impact Council strives to provide emergency and disaster care services to help stabilize individuals and families, meeting their most immediate needs.

Together, Our Impact is Strongest

Uniting the community to identify and solve our most critical issues depends on your generous support.

The Challenges We Face

At any given moment, a person can experience job loss, hunger, rising rent, utility bills, fire, hurricane or a pandemic. When an individual or family needs help or experiences a life event, disaster or crisis; the impact often has a ripple effect on their job, education, health and safety.

Our Work in Action

Providing Assistance 24/7

Whether it's a personal need or a natural disaster, United Way's 2-1-1 Helpline, available 24/7/365, is a critical link for hundreds of thousands of South Texas callers and website visitors each year who seek assistance and referrals to health and human services. Calls are free, confidential and conducted in English or Spanish.

Supporting Military Families

Home to Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, JBSA-Lackland and JBSA-Camp Bullis, San Antonio is known as Military City, USA®. MISSION UNITED connects active-duty service members, reservists, veterans and their families to vital community resources through calls to the 2-1-1 Helpline.

Preparing for the Unexpected

The Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) manages federal funds awarded through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The Bexar County, TX Local Board #788600, administered by our United Way, looks at needs and gaps in services in the community and focuses the dollars to support those partners serving individuals and families most in need.
