🎉🎉🎉 PARTNER AGENCY OF THE WEEK 🎉🎉🎉

Part of our mission here at United Way is to make sure everyone in our community has the tools to be financially stable and the basics they need to survive.

Our Partner Agency of the Week, Sans Souci, operates a thrift store that combats poverty and supports self-sufficiency in our community.

Through the Employee Development, no-cost and low-cost programs, Sans Souci strives to make Bartholomew County a place where everyone lives their life “without worry”- Sans Souci’s exact translation!

Here is a look at some of the impact this agency has:

✔️ Sans Souci serves over 3,000 community members in need each year by giving them the opportunity to shop free of charge for essential items such as clothing, shoes, winter coats and steel toe boots.

✔️ By intentionally pricing furniture, clothing and household goods at a low cost, community members are able to support themselves and save money when looking for these essential goods.

✔️ Sans Souci hires community members who have struggled to obtain or retain employment elsewhere.

✔️ While working at Sans Souci, employees receive valuable training and support as Sans Souci helps them remove the barriers that have prohibited them from self-sufficiency.
