"I have never had to ask for assistance in the past, your knowledge and guidance has been so helpful. I am grateful for your help, and appreciate all the work that you do."
        — Quaker Valley Resident

The Union Aid Society has been a "safety-net" for the Quaker Valley community for over one hundred years. We help our Quaker Valley neighbors find the assistance they need in an emergency. We can refer you to community resources as well as provide immediate relief. Our executive director is a licensed social worker and can help when you are experiencing a crisis.
