Thank you, 100+ Women Who Care

United Human Services of SE Alaska (UHS) is so grateful for the generosity of Juneau’s 100+ Women Who Care. These community-minded philanthropists contributed more than $28,000 to support Teal Street Center, the future social services hub that broke ground in November.

Thanks to the 100+ Women Who Care, and so many other generous contributors, we are well on our way to securing the funding needed to bring this important project to fruition. Teal Street Center will be much more than a building that houses health and social services organizations. It will be a one-stop shop on a campus that consolidates services, information and resources in one convenient location for people of all ages and backgrounds.

We appreciate the generous contributors who came together to support Teal Street Center. You can learn more about the 100+ Women Who Care at www.100wwcjnu.org.

Joe Parrish,

UHS President
