Manuel's Story

Manuel didn’t know where to turn. Winter was coming and his house was falling down. He didn’t have heat or electric. Manuel had served his country for years as a Marine, but now found himself unemployed and almost homeless.


A friend told him to call United Way’s 2-1-1 helpline. Directed to Hudson River Housing, Manuel not only found an apartment, but also job training and placement especially for veterans that’s funded by United Way’s MISSION UNITED™. He now loves where he’s living and has a great job — thanks to your support of United Way.
