    and trusted partner
  • in improving lives (touching 1 of every 2 lives
    in our community)

LOOKING AT THE BIG PICTURE
  • United Way is the one organization that
  • Keeps the social safety net strong

    25,000
  • 1 in 3 families has trouble buying groceries
    monthly
  • 1 in 4 children are left alone after school
  • Some 14,000 people are homeless on Houston
    streets every night

  • 1 in 5 children lives in poverty
  • These are the realities of life for many in
    Houston, and why United Ways work is so
    important.

    entire cycle of life

    THRIVE?
