What Resources are Available to Our Community with the Help of United Way?

November 23, 2021

United Way donors, staff and volunteers are making strides toward a better tomorrow by strategically funding local programs and working toward community identified goals. Across Delaware County, nearly half of families and individuals are living on the edge of crisis. Each morning they may wake up and go to work, while still faced with the uncertainty of whether or not they will be able to put dinner on the table or have a safe place to spend the night. When people face barriers to their stability, United Way and other partner organizations step in with community-based safety net services. When the unexpected happens the organizations below may be able to help.

  • 211: A free, confidential, 24-7 service that helps connect callers with the local resources they need. Anyone can get help paying bills, finding food, and locating other resources near them by simply dialing 211 on the phone.

  • PathStone: Housing Counseling for home ownership and renters to create a personalized budget, set realistic financial goals, and improve credit scores. Their Rental Advocacy Program builds family and individual self-sufficiency by strengthening farmworker, rural, and urban communities. PathStone promotes social justice through programs and advocacy.

  • Interactive Food Assistance Availability Map: This resource enables people experiencing food scarcity to enter their address and instantly find food assistance organizations near them. Food Pantries provide groceries to prepare and use at home and Meal Sites serve packed meals ready to take home and eat.
