Welcome to the LE Class of 2016

Each year, we welcome a new group of people into the ranks of our United Way staff. The LEs (Loaned Executives) are full time, temporary staff who assist with our annual fundraising campaign in area workplaces. Since the program's inception there are more than 300 people that have served our community in this capacity and they all look at their experience as an important part of their life story.

A Forum on Veteran Homelessness

We just got this in the mail from our friends and partners at Homeward Bound and thought you'd like an opportunity to learn more about this issue and how you can get involved:

Nearly 40% of all persons in Buncombe County experiencing homelessness are veterans. Join us tomorrow evening to be inspired and to learn how you can participate in ending veteran homelessness in our community.
