Everyone deserves a safe home
with enough food to eat.

Families and individuals must have a safe home with healthy food for everyone who lives there in order to work toward a higher degree of prosperity.

Food on the table. A safe and secure place to call “home.” These are basic needs for everyone in the Richmond and Petersburg region. Unfortunately, many of our friends and neighbors are unable to provide these essentials for themselves or their families. Many more residents live at risk, living month to month in situations where a sudden job loss or health crisis could be devastating.

Covering these basic needs is the first step on the path to success. We are committed to helping everyone get there.

United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg formed the Southside Trauma-Informed Community Network (Southside TICN) in August 2016, after numerous community leaders and organizations expressed interest in coming together to better understand trauma-informed care and incorporate its best practices into their work.
