The California Apartment Association Greater Inland Empire has donated $10,000 to Inland Empire United Way.

The funds will assist United Way in providing a safety net for those in crisis and helping youth to achieve future self‐sufficiency.

Six months ago, CAA and United Way formed a partnership aimed at working together to battle poverty and homelessness in the Inland Empire, where one in four children are part of a family that is struggling to make ends meet. Since that time, CAA members have begun volunteering, donating, and exploring ways to support United Way’s mission in the region.

“Inland Empire United Way is proving early on that they’re a great partner for CAA Greater Inland Empire, mobilizing our members and opening more avenues for us to help the communities we serve,” said Kelly Vickers, board chairwoman of CAA Greater Inland Empire.

With more than 1,000 members, CAA Greater Inland Empire brings its extensive housing industry network to the partnership, including apartment owners, property management companies, affordable housing experts and businesses that support the rental housing industry.

CAA Greater Inland Empire’s executive director, Tim Johnson, said it’s an honor to support Inland Empire United Way.

“CAA cares and our partnership with IEUW helps ensure children and families in the Inland Empire have the resources and opportunities to thrive,” Johnson said.

Inland Empire United Way’s CEO, Gregory Bradbard, shared that he is excited about the potential for this new partnership.

“Not only will CAA’s dollars make a powerful impact in our community, but this is an opportunity to work together toward supporting those most in need and finding more affordable housing solutions for families in the Inland Empire,” Bradbard said.
