The Greater Valdosta United Way has a very limited budget to help those in need. Applications generally open around the first of the month and close within a couple of days due to the overwhelming need. It is recommended to begin checking to see if applications have been opened a few days prior to the first. At the bottom of this page, there are lists and links that provide information on additional resources in our community, please check them out.
