Changemaker Partner of the Month – Valley of the Sun United Way

Posted by: Daniil Gunitskiy in Cool People, Projects / Comments (2)

With the end of this semester quickly coming upon us, it is also time for the final Changemaker Partner of the Month – Valley of the Sun United Way (VSUW). The Changemaker Partner series launched this past January as a pilot and featured non-profit partners Big Brother Big Sisters and Girls Scouts – Arizona Cactus-Pine Council. Aspects of the series included office hours within Changemaker Central, Solutions Showcases, and a 10,000 Solutions challenge question issued from our monthly partners.

In this month’s 10,000 Solutions challenge question video, Community Impact Vice President for VSUW, Amy Schwabenlender, poses VSUW’s challenge question: How can our community work together to end and prevent homelessness?

VSUW has a long-term, multi-faceted strategy to end homelessness in Maricopa County, which includes community solutions like Permanent Supportive Housing. In the video, Amy describes a solution called Project Connect that addresses the immediate needs of homelessness through intervention and prevention. Project Connect is held monthly throughout the Valley and brings together more than 30 human services providers in one central location, increasing access to vital services for many.

Offer your own solutions to VSUW’s challenge question and be eligible to win a LIVE UNITED prize pack.

This week, April 15-21, happens to be National Volunteering Week, and April is actually the Global Month of Service. In addition to posting a solution to this month’s challenge, you can also make an immediate impact by volunteering at the next Project Connect.

  1. The fact that an emphasis is placed in this house distinguishes
    you as a person who will make a difference of incredible measure, leaving
    a legacy long after you have left this dimension. Brain Wave Vibration, Ilchi
    Lee, 2008, ISBN 9781935127000. A majority of studies suggest that WBV training
    is as effective, and in some cases more effective, than traditional resistance training in eliciting
    gains in muscular strength.

  2. Hi, its nice piece of writing regarding media print, we all be familiar with media is a wonderful
    source of facts.
