Basic Needs

United Way of Central Indiana brings together compassionate people who are committed to improving lives in our community.

For nearly 100 years, we have strived to help all Central Indiana residents achieve and maintain self-sufficiency by focusing on four key areas of community impact – Education, Income, Health and Basic Needs – in the six-county region of Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Marion and Morgan counties.

United Way of Central Indiana recognizes that an individual must have adequate food, housing and utilities in order to be in a position to strive for self-sufficiency. Our focus on meeting Basic Needs for Central Indiana’s most vulnerable residents has led to many strong results in the last year:
  • 4,300 people received emergency shelter after fleeing domestic violence;
  • 177,996 people who called 2-1-1 were connected to 230,728 services;
  • Winter Assistance Fund assisted 968 families to stay warm;
  • United Christmas Services helped 6,774 families.

Looking Ahead

United Way will continue to support efforts to provide the basic needs of food, shelter, legal aid and transportation to the highly vulnerable and those in crisis through programs, partnerships and agency services aligned with our community impact goals.
