As a way to rally around a cause in our community, the United Way of Weld County (UWWC) is proud to host the fifth annual Live United 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, May 1, 2021. This year’s proceeds will benefit UWWC’s Housing Navigation Center (HNC), a resource facility for individuals and families experiencing homelessness or housing instability in Weld County. The HNC is part of a Weld County-wide Housing First strategy. Through the Housing First method, households regain housing and stability quickly, obtain and sustain employment, are better equipped to respond to mental and physical health treatment, can effectively manage chronic conditions, and more. In addition, individuals stop over-utilizing emergency management services, eliminate law enforcement contacts, and spend less time in jail, saving taxpayer dollars. Helping homeless households regain stability (and preventing those on the cusp of homelessness avoid it) builds safe, prosperous, and vibrant communities.
