United Way Unmet Needs Committee
Collaborating to connect people to resources to solve immediate needs with lasting impact since 1993
United Way Unmet Needs Committee meets monthly to identify alternative resources and solutions for cases brought before them by agencies, cases with immediate needs that agencies have not been able to resolve. Through brainstorming and collaboration of committee members and the groups they represent, clients can be assisted with needs for which there are few resources. When assistance on a particular case is not available elsewhere in the community, the United Way Unmet Needs Committee may approve United Way funds to be used for the case.
The committee consists of community members and representatives from businesses, non-profit, and faith-based and government agencies. Through the work of the United Way Unmet Needs Committee, local people are connected to resources to help them gain and maintain stability.
