Heart of Indiana United Way understands that before families and individuals can focus on their future, they must be able to meet their basic needs. United Way seeks partners that will work with clients in crisis to help them address their basic needs and bring stability to their lives. Partners must have a process in place to assess client needs and not discriminate based on age, race, sex, religion, national origin, disability, economic status, or sexual orientation. Successful Safety Net applicants will have a desire to improve the delivery of basic needs in their community by linking up with other partners in the community to “weave” a more cohesive system that puts the clients at the center of their work and eliminates unnecessary steps and burdens to receive services.
Safety Net Services include, but are not limited to, assistance with: Rent, Utilities, Emergency Shelter, Food, Transportation, Baby Supplies, and Health Access.
Safety Net Grantees will be gathered regularly throughout the year to work collectively on service delivery with other agencies in the community. Grantees will be required to track their assistance through Charity Tracker and will be strongly encouraged to conduct warm referrals for clients to other services. Grantees will be required to commit at least one front-line staff member to quarterly Community Health Worker training. $200 of funding will be allocated toward training and $120 toward Charity Tracker license for one staff person. Organizations can train more staff and purchase more licenses at their expense.
