Need Help? Call 211


We want to address complex community issues by investing in the basic building blocks that every person – and every community – need to thrive:

Education, Economic Mobility, Health and Well-being, and Basic/Emerging needs.

We aim to serve individuals who are historically or currently marginalized, and may be suffering from systemic inequities that impede their ability to reach and maintain financial independence through family-sustaining employment.

We seek to accelerate proven and innovative solutions via focused Level Up & Launch grants. These grants are made possible by the donations of thousands of community investors each year, and United Way is committed to serving as a strategic steward of these dollars. And we contribute further to the work – grantees will receive support through the connections and opportunities we bring, including volunteers and other resources to aid in their success.

Check back soon to see what focus areas will be funded by CIGs in 2024!

Highlighting reports/gaps 

We provide a snapshot of our community through the various ways that we collect data as an organization. We conduct assessments, publish data reporting, and provide data collection tools so that you can have a pulse on what our community is currently doing and what is still needed.

"Get Connected. Get Help. - Never have those words, our tagline, meant more to us. The breadth of needs continue to increase as individuals try their best to navigate their new normal during a pandemic. Individuals not needing to seek services before reached out for help, and thankfully, United Way's investment in 211 allowed us to continue to respond, with compassion and empathy, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year."
