A Community United
As coronavirus, COVID-19, continues to spread across the U.S. and the globe, the health and safety of the community and its residents is our number one priority. Our local focus, in concert with our community impact partners, is working to improve the lives of local children, students, families and those in emergency situations. Now, the people we serve may be even more vulnerable during this public health emergency.
Please know that the United Way 2-1-1 Help Line is part of the disaster communications plan for our City, County and State governments. Our call center is in active disaster response mode as we partner with the San Antonio MetroHealth Department (SAMHD) and the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to combat COVID-19 locally. We are on stand-by to expand our capacity, if necessary, for an increase in call volume.
The COVID-19 Response Fund was created by United Way, and multiple partners, including the San Antonio Area Foundation to help support the immediate and long-term needs of our community during these challenging times. For a complete list of awarded grants, click here.
