United Way Long Island

Safe at Home for Veterans

United Way of Long Island focuses on serving the most vulnerable and at-risk individuals across Long Island. United Way of Long Island’s Mission United provides critical support to U.S. military veterans and their families on Long Island as they re-acclimate to civilian life. This support ranges from job training and employment assistance to emergency financial aid. Through their Mission United program, United Way specifically focuses on providing these services to the military-veteran population. The need for these services is particularly significant on Long Island as there are more than 95,000 veterans living in the area. With this BWF grant, United Way Long Island will decrease instances of hunger for at least 488 military/veteran households living in Long Island by providing financial assistance for food.
