Special to Iredell Free News

United Way of Iredell County announced Tuesday that more than $240,000 in grants have been awarded by the local Emergency Food and Shelter Board for Phase 39 & ARPA-R.

The Emergency Food and Shelter funds are intended to supplement existing programs that provide food, utility, housing and shelter services for community residents in crisis.

The Emergency Food and Shelter Program was established on March 24, 1983, with the signing of the “Jobs Stimulus Bill,” Public Law 98-8. That legislation created a National Board, chaired by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). More information is available at https://www.efsp.unitedway.org/.

    I live in Statesville, and I have been homeless for four years. I have tried to get help. I am in the hospital, and I’m in need of emergency help. I keep getting turned away. Who else do I turn to for help when everybody tells me to turn to?
