Healthy People & Thriving Communities

At United Way of the Blue Mountains, we unite the community and mobilize resources so that every child, individual and family thrives.

We envision a community where every person—no matter their background, their circumstances or their zip code—has an equal chance at a bright future.

Emergency Food and Shelter Program

Federal funds are made available in Walla Walla and Umatilla Counties to supplement emergency food and shelter programs through the Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency under the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program (EFSP). The amount available is determined by a National Board chaired by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's FEMA Agency and includes representatives from national nonprofit organizations. Qualifying local organizations are urged to apply. 

Meet Our Neighbors’ Basic Needs

Together, we can ensure all of our families have a stable place to call home, food to eat and the support they need in times of crisis and providing the supportive services they need to stay stable and avoid a future crisis.
