We invite you to join us in our mission to provide safe and affordable housing in Smith County! Giving Tuesday is November 28th, but you can donate toward the ‘Tyler Gives’ initiative during the entire month of November! We grateful to participate in Tyler Gives again this year, which is a huge perk of being a United Way Agency!


As our generous host of Tyler Gives, United Way of Smith County is offering a $75,000 matching grant, thanks to many wonderful sponsors! For this special one-day campaign, 100% of every dollar will stay local, and 100% will go directly to the agency, or agencies, of your choosing. United Way’s sponsors have graciously covered all expenses from technology to printing, even credit card transaction fees!


Meet Mrs. Cordella Dorsey, one of our more recent Critical Repair clients. Like many of our clients, Mrs. Dorsey has lived in her home for over forty years. The surviving spouse of a veteran, Mrs. Dorsey has lived on her own for many of those years. After years of living alone on a fixed income, there were small repairs around the home that went unattended which later became large issues for Mrs. Dorsey.


Click the video below to hear Mrs. Dorsey’s story as she watched her home become ‘brand new’ before her eyes thanks to the work of Smith County Habitat’s Critical Repairs program.
