Respond. Recover. Rebuild. As we pivot now from response to recovery, your United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona is committed to building a thriving Southern Arizona community. For the past several months, we have joined with our nonprofit partners, local foundations, businesses, media and educational organizations to create and manage the United for Southern Arizona COVID-19 Fund. Funds raised are distributed to partner agencies and go directly to helping local individuals and families in our community survive during and after the crisis. Our efforts will continue as we work towards recovering and rebuilding our community.
Never has the need been greater for the most vulnerable people in our community.

With our non-profit partners, United Way will continue to deliver emergency services and resources for individuals and families. Assistance and support includes:
