United Way Testimonials


"I realized that Vincent Village is much more than just temporary housing for homeless families. Residents get help to become self-reliant again. Abandoned houses are purchased and remodeled for the families, which inspires neighbors to improve their homes. It's eye-opening!" - Suin Roberts, International Language and Culture StudiesVincent Village Visit


"Touring Vincent Village really put a face on the issue of homelessness. When I learned 70 percent of the residents were children, it hit home for me how critical it is to donate to the United Way." - Angela Williams, Continuing Studies



 "I was impressed with the services that the local chapter provides to the community, surrounding counties, and states, all with donations and grants. Their greatest achievement is the networking around the world, everyone helping everyone." - Dawn Barnes, Physical Plant


Red Cross visit"I was really surprised to learn that the Red Cross had no government affiliation or funding. When areas are affected by natural disaster or conflict, they can go across borders." - James Velez, Special Events


 "It is comforting to know that if I had a house fire, the Red Cross would be on the scene to provide assistance." - Patrick McLaughlin, Registrar
