Of the 260,000 veterans and their families living in southwestern Pennsylvania, 100,000 reside in Allegheny County. Many returning veterans face challenges gaining employment, mental health or disability issues, and the prospect of homelessness. Project SERVE, now Mission United, gives back to those who have given so much for our country.
United Way mobilizes and supports a network of leading service providers to help local veterans and their families find jobs, a place to live and other supports to help them re-build their lives.
In the past year, 5,200 veterans accessed information related to housing, employment and transportation needs through United Way’s PA 2-1-1 Southwest help center. Mission United has enabled thousands of our returning heroes to once more become productive, contributing members of our community.
You can help by volunteering or providing funding that will support outreach to veterans, connections to vital resources and direct programming.
