Our COVID-19 Response
Together, we helped ease the burden caused by this crisis and provided much-needed support for our most vulnerable neighbors.
what we were up against
The economic effects of the COVID-19 crisis were immense, particularly for those living paycheck to paycheck. Many families still struggling to recover from flooding and tornadoes were finding their path to stable housing and financial stability even more challenging. Senior citizens and historically underserved and minority communities were particularly vulnerable.
How we made it better
To meet the needs of our community during this unprecedented crisis, United Way relied on its strong public-private partnerships to raise and distribute essential funds to help those most affected by the pandemic. In partnership with state and local governments, we were able to quickly and efficiently put funds back into the community to help our neighbors stay in their homes, meet their basic needs and receive quality healthcare and wellness support.
