It matters because a strong local network is crucial to helping individuals and families get access to the supports they need, especially when in crisis.


What we’re doing – The partnership between United Way and 2-1-1 directed 12,529 households to critical support services in 2015.

United Way’s support for unified, strategic approaches to solving community issues includes being a founder and lead partner in Cradle2Career, The Health Improvement Organization and financial stability efforts.
