Stable, strong and supported families are a critical foundation for making our community better for everyone.

Whether it’s instability due to a family crisis, unemployment or a history of insecurity, United Way and our partners provide education, training and resources to help families thrive.

Finding And Accessing The Right Resources

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to access the resources they need to become stable. Through 2-1-1, we help connect individual to communities of resources which enable create opportunity for independence and a better quality of life.

Neighborhood-Based Support

We understand that stability begins with the community around you. Families at risk typically face obstacles in accessing useful resources. By placing life coaches within the community they serve, we’re able to bring the right resources at the right time.
