United Way is committed to providing options and solutions to families in need. We support services that help families with their basic needs like food clothing and shelter, and we commit to standing by Bay Area families on their path to financial stability. If you are in need of immediate help and don’t know where to turn, 2-1-1 phone service is available 24 hours day in more than 150 languages and can give you information on programs located near your home or work, or to answer questions you may have about community services in general.
We have also created a helpful guide Help Starts Here developed to help people through difficult times. What that means for each of us may vary. It could be that you’ve lost a job or perhaps have a job but can’t get enough hours or pay to make ends meet. Getting the services you need, dealing with a situation of reduced financial resources and knowing your rights can all help you during these stressful times.
