DHC and APPNA Deliver Supplies to Up for Women and Children
Uniting Partners’ mission is to provide a healthy, safe environment for homeless women and children that offers opportunities and encouragement for achieving self-sufficiency. By providing shelter and resource options through a partnership of providers, UP for Women and Children is where homeless women are empowered to find hope, help, and refuge. UP provides a safe place to rest, build community, and find resources needed to reclaim lives such as showers, laundry, access to a phone and mailing address and connections to housing, employment, and financial benefits. UP provides resources and referrals through case management and a partnership of providers and assists homeless women and youth with obtaining ID and birth certificates. They serve all individuals regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, age, familial status, gender identity, sexual orientation, immigration status, language proficiency, disability, veteran status, political affiliations or beliefs.
Their model is simple – partner with anyone and everyone who can help to address the issue of family homelessness: congregations, individuals, cities and counties, and businesses of all sizes. DHC and APPNA are humbled & proud to partner with UP for Women and Children to serve their fellow citizens. To learn more, visit https://www.uplouisville.org.
