Basic Needs

By donating to United Way, you’re providing people with immediate, emergency assistance such as food and shelter.


We invest in programs and initiatives that provide information and referral services through 2-1-1 and access to immediate emergency services such as food, shelter, disaster relief and services for survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault.  Here’s an example:

2-1-1:  2-1-1 provides a one-stop connection for emergency services and supports. 2-1-1 is there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year to help people find what they need (https://www.211ct.org/).
