Support Recovery and Rebuilding in the Philippines
Help those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines by donating to United Way Worldwide’s Disaster Rebuilding Fund.
This fund will support long-term rebuilding and recovery efforts such as rebuilding schools, helping displaced workers find new jobs and addressing mental health and other needs that often do not present themselves until a year or more after disaster strikes.
To make a donation, visit www.unitedway.org/philippines. Please note, your charitable gift will be charged a 5% service management and processing fee.
Meet Paul Gahagan
When Paul Gahagan walked through the doors of New Hope Ministries in Mechanicsburg he was without a job and money to buy life-sustaining diabetes medication, pay for his rent and afford groceries. The support he received from the organization has been nothing short of life-changing.
The staff at New Hope Ministries first helped Paul with his immediate needs of medication, housing and groceries. The next step was to move Paul beyond his crisis point to stability through services offered by the Prosperity Center located within the agency. United Way of the Capital Region (UWCR) launched the Prosperity Centers in 2010 to help individuals and families in the Capital Region improve their financial condition and ultimately become financially stable. New Hope Ministries has been a Prosperity Center site since 2010.
