United Way of the Capital Region COVID-19 Response

During times of uncertainty, our community comes together to support each other. This has been United Way of the Capital Region’s way of work for nearly 100 years. While, COVID-19 is a new test of our collective strength, we know we can – and will – overcome this challenging time by working together because LIVE UNITED is not about a tagline, it’s a reflection of who we are as a community.

Here is a compilation of resources and giving and volunteering opportunities to date. We will update this information as needs change in our community.

Do You Need Help? – Call 211

211 is a non-emergency line that connects individuals directly to programs and services based on areas of need. Individuals can also access 211 online at uwp.org/211gethelp/.
