The health and safety of our communities is our priority.
UNITED WE FIGHT – COVID-19
United Way has been on the front lines of disaster response, delivering high-demand resources to communities in need and providing individuals with personalized help in crisis situations for many, many years.
We are here to help you.
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.
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.
United Way focuses on providing the building blocks for a good life: Basic Needs, Education, Health and Income. With one gift, of any amount, you can effectively help the whole community and impact the entire spectrum of need through a single act. Your gift will be joined with thousands of others as part of our general community fund. You can expect that your contribution will yield measurable results.
