Homie Partners with Valley of the Sun United Way for 95th Anniversary

Homie is proud to announce we have partnered with Valley of the Sun United Way to give back to our local communities in honor of their 95th anniversary.

To celebrate Valley of the Sun United Way’s 95th anniversary, Homie will donate $95 for every home bought or sold in July. Last April Homie launched its Homie Helps Initiative to support local communities in need. This July, Homie’s contributions will go towards Mighty Change 2026 Impact Area of Housing and Homeless, one of the four pillars in Valley of the Sun United Way’s five-year plan. The plan aims to help Arizonans get through the continual impact of COVID-19, as well as the mighty goal of decreasing homelessness in Maricopa County by 50%.

About the Partnership

Through this partnership, Homie and Valley of the Sun United Way will prioritize communities that are close to experiencing homelessness due to COVID-19, which is still impacting families throughout Maricopa County.

The services and programs to prevent homelessness include:

– Decrease individual and family housing insecurity through targeted investments in rent/utility assistance, housing navigators, and eviction prevention.

– Improve systems with housing and homeless services to reduce barriers to entry for communities of color and other vulnerable communities.

– Partner with regional organizations to develop new metrics that capture county-wide vulnerability of people facing eviction or in need of rent/utility assistance.

In April 2020, Homie committed to contributing up to $100,000 to the Valley of the Sun United Way COVID-19 Response Fund.
