Growing up with a single mother, we struggled to meet our basic needs, including food security and stable housing. What drew me to the mission of Unite Us was its ability to ensure barriers to access were eliminated and that families could do more than survive. In fact, by meeting people where they are, we help communities thrive by ensuring resources are inclusive, accessible, and transparent. New Yorkers deserve fewer obstacles to live healthy, holistic lives and Unite Us seamlessly paves the way.
After 12 years of working at a cradle-to-grave organization, I found it disheartening that despite the wide range of services we provided, we weren't individually able to meet all of our member's complex needs; everything from car seats and transportation to behavioral and mental health services. We could guide folks to resources but these programs were not always in our wheelhouse. Unite Us enables organizations to focus on what they’re best at and connect with other providers to help meet community needs collectively. Coming from my background, I was thrilled to be able to contribute to the fluidity and collaborative nature of the Unite New York network and help community organizations work together, rather than in silos, to better serve clients.
