With increased demand for health and human services due to the pandemic a local non-profit is helping out. United Way of Mesa County gave Western Colorado 2-1-1 a grant to help with COVID-19 response.
The funding is part of a nation-wide five million dollar gift given to United Way Worldwide. More than $11,000 was given to the Western Colorado chapter.
The 2-1-1 program has been a huge help for people in the community who are suffering from unemployment, hunger, and housing issues because of COVID.
