“Suddenly, in the midst of my life falling apart I had such a moment of clarity. I remember thinking to myself, ‘I am about to become a statistic…I’m having my United Way moment.’ See, what I was fully aware of is that at any minute the Red Cross [a United Way agency] was going to show up to offer me assistance. I remember the feeling that I wasn’t alone, help was available. There was a comfort in that.”

– Jennifer Wellman, Housefire Victim
