United Way of Central Alabama (UWCA) is always there to help those in need throughout our six-county area. But for more than a year now, thanks to a global pandemic and the countless challenges associated with it, more people than ever have found themselves struggling in one way or another – and UWCA has responded in kind. The instant devastation of a tornado on top of that, however, has created long-term needs in our community that require extraordinary attention.
That’s why your United Way has been leading the long-term recovery effort following the January 25th tornado in Fultondale. By not only raising money but also by bringing a wide variety of organizations together, we’re able to pool our capabilities and match them to individuals’ needs in a highly effective and efficient way. Bham Now recently published an article about this innovative approach to meeting unmet needs long after the initial recovery efforts have ended. We invite you to take a few moments to read the story here.
