Donnie, a disabled veteran battling terminal colon cancer is a recent Home for Good client. Following the death of his wife, Donnie was chronically homeless for more than 10 years. Before being accepted into the Home for Good program, Donnie was living in a motel where he wasn’t sure where his next meal was coming from and was overwhelmed with medical bills.

With the help of United Way of Greater Williamsburg, Donnie was able to move into his own apartment in August. His case managers connected him to needed services such as Meals on Wheels and Veterans Affairs. United Way secured transportation to his medical appointments and helped Donnie apply for financial assistance with his medical bills. Today Donnie lives in a home instead of a motel and has the help and support he needs to live with dignity.

When you give to United Way of Greater Williamsburg, you support the Home for Good program and help people like Donnie.
