Emergency Fund


When we LIVE UNITED we accomplish more than any single entity can alone.

United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona partners with Catholic Community Services to support their shelter providing temporary housing to asylum-seekers on their way to sponsoring family in the United States.

Casa Alitas is a program of Catholic Community Services of Southern Arizona that provides a safe place for people seeking asylum in the United States to eat, sleep and arrange travel for the final steps of their journey to sponsoring friends and relatives around the country. 

As Casa Alitas transitions to a new facility, donations to this fund will be used to procure high-quality items to ensure it is adequately and comfortably furnished for their guests. Once the facility transition is complete, donations to this fund will provide items of greatest need based on the assessments and requests of program leadership, whether that be food, clothing, bedding or medical supplies.

If you are interested in donating items or volunteering at Casa Alitas, contact Rachel Cheeseman.


Make a gift and be a part of uniting our community.
