Free & Confidential Help Line

If you need assistance finding food, paying housing bills or other essential services, call United Way’s 211 help line.

You will be directed to information and resources that can help.

Whether you are in crisis, or need a little support, call 211 or 1-800-543-7709.


Call Your Friends & Family

Loneliness is as damaging as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Even during isolation, modern technology allows us to stay connected. Checking in on friends and family is more than polite right now, it’s essential. And don’t forget elderly neighbors or others living alone.

Take Care of Your Mental Health

If you are stuck at home, keep busy with hobbies, try out arts and crafts, pick up an old musical instrument, organize family game nights, and step outside for fresh air and exercise. You cannot take care of others unless you take care of yourself.

Stay Active

Exercise is good for mental health and physical health—even if it is just a quick break to stretch or a walk around the block.

Take a Moment

Choose a time of day where you will check in with yourself about how things are going. Ask yourself questions about how you are feeling.

Ask for Help

You are not alone. Contact United Way’s 211 help line to inquire about financial help, mental health and other resources.
