Doctors for Healthy Communities and Muslim Americans for Compassion volunteers delivered winter scarves, caps, hot chocolate supplies and multiple cases of bottled water to Uniting Partners for Women and Children (UP) in Louisville, KY on January 29th, 2021. 

UP’s vision is to ensure homelessness is rare and brief for women and children by providing a safe, empowering space that offers the supportive services and resources needed by women to become self-sufficient. 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. They provide comprehensive services for homeless women and children: a safe space, showers, laundry, access to a restroom, phone, mailing address, help obtaining vital documents and case management.
