Nearly half of households in Southeastern Michigan struggle to meet their basic needs —including 165,000 families with children. Often, these families are one dentist bill or flat tire away from real financial crisis.
Thankfully, when crisis strikes, 2-1-1 is there.
United Way 2-1-1 is a free, confidential, 24/7 helpline that connects people with resources to get them on the road to stability. But it only works if people know it exists.
Every year, more than 100,000 people reach out to 2-1-1 for help. But we know there are so many more who struggle to pay their bills or put food on the table.
February is 2-1-1 Awareness Month, and we need YOUR help to spread the word about this vital community service.
Hundreds of thousands of people contact 2-1-1 every year, but we know there are so many more who could use some help but don’t know that 2-1-1 is available. Enter your information below to pledge to help spread the word about 2-1-1. We’ll email you some resources to get started, and send you a special United Way 2-1-1 sticker as our way of saying “thank you.”
