United Way Volunteer Leadership
Unmet Needs Committee
The Unmet Needs Committee is a group of community members and representatives from non-profits, churches, utilities, and government agencies. United Way Unmet Needs is one of the seven United Way Initiatives/ Programs. The Committee meets monthly to identify alternative resources and solutions for cases brought before them, needs that agencies have not been able to meet. Through brainstorming and collaboration of committee members and the groups they represent, previously unmet individual needs cases can often receive help. When assistance on a particular case is not available elsewhere in the community, the Unmet Needs Committee might distribute United Way funds to the individual seeking assistance.
