Community Vitality

UniSource is dedicated to being a good neighbor and assisting our most vulnerable residents: struggling working families, seniors, persons with disabilities, teens and young children.

Our support provides hot meals to limited-income families, helps victims of domestic violence and child abuse and addresses homelessness by ensuring residents have safe and energy efficient housing.

By working to address these needs, we’re giving residents new opportunities for a better life while creating stronger, healthier and more vibrant communities.
