If you are looking for assistance
Most United Ways are not set up to provide direct financial assistance to individuals, but we work with many community partners that do. The best way to find available resources in your area is by calling our 211 help number. It's a 3-digit number like 9-1-1, but for access to health and human services. Calling 211 will get you a trained resource and referral specialist, who will know what services are available in your area. Sometimes the 211 line can be a problem from a cell phone, or may not yet be available in your immediate area. If you can't get through on 211, you can go to www.211.org and type in your zip code. It will provide an alternate number where one is available.
If you have trouble, you can call your local United Way and they may be able to point you in the right direction. Find your local United Way.
