If You or Someone You Know Needs Assistance
2-1-1 across all affected areas is operational. If someone you know needs help, they can call 2-1-1, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There may be a wait, but calls will be answered. In case of emergency, dial 9-1-1.
2-1-1 is a free, confidential service that connects people from all communities to essential health and human services—24 hours a day, seven days a week. 2-1-1 will remain open and ready to provide local information about evacuation routes, shelters, food and water, health resources, and other needs throughout the storm.
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma Recovery
United Way created the United Way Harvey Recovery Fund to support local communities in Texas, Louisiana and the surrounding areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. United Way created the United Way Irma Recovery Fund to support local communities in the Southeast United States and Caribbean affected by Hurricane Irma. As part of our mission to build stronger communities, and to fight for every person in every community, United Ways in the affected areas will continue to raise money locally and respond to emerging needs as appropriate for their community. United Way’s Harvey and Irma Recovery funds will complement those efforts, help smaller United Ways who may not have the capacity to create their own fund and provide a single clearinghouse for individual and corporate donors who want to impact affected areas..
