United Way of the Bluegrass: By the numbers, the support of donors and volunteers yields results


Timothy Johnson, president and CEO of United Way of the Bluegrass, reports that through the generous support of a community of donors and volunteers, 2019 yielded the following: 
 
• 95% of the 16,000 people who called, texted, or emailed our 2-1-1 contact center were directed to community resources to meet their basic needs.

• 1,100 low-income individuals received the training that they needed to secure a job that pays a sustainable wage. 1,000 people increased their income after receiving services.

• Over 44,000 low-income families received essential clothing items and 23,000 families in-need received food.

• Over 9,000 people experiencing housing instability received short- and long-term help with housing, and/or help with securing permanent housing.

• Over 17,000 people gave over 275,000 hours to UWBG and its partners, helping to improve the lives of our community’s most vulnerable families.
