Connecting Local Families in Need to Critical Resources
Everyone experiences emergencies from time to time. For some Silicon Valley residents, however, each day is a struggle for financial stability and independence. When an emergency hits, they need somewhere to turn for help. Emergency Assistance Network (EAN) is a United Way Bay Area collaboration with seven local Santa Clara County partner agencies, and seven law enforcement agencies that have joined to create a safety net of essential services for all Santa Clara County residents. This collaborative offers assistance to help families and individuals recover from emergency situations by providing food assistance, rent and mortgage aid, utility assistance and medical and transportation aid, often providing case management and financial education.
