Community Assessments 

United Way's mission is to connect and mobilize our community and our assessment collection helps us achieve that. We want to share the wealth of information with our local area agencies in hopes it will help them secure donor, or grant, dollars. 


When there’s a crisis, where do you turn? If it’s a life-threatening emergency, you call 911. But what if you can’t pay your electric bill? Or you need childcare? Or legal help? Now you call or text 211.


​211 is the one number you call or text to get answers to life’s many challenges. And United Way makes it possible.


We partner with nearly all pharmacies nationwide to negotiate prescription discounts, so you receive a lower price.

No personal information needed, no enrollment necessary; simply present the card.
