Basic Needs

Crisis, Homelessness, Hunger can happen anytime, to Virtually Anyone

We recognize that improvements in conditions won't completely eliminate the need for programs helping those in immediate crisis.  United Way has a long history of supporting these services and understands the valuable safety net they provide our community.  A safety net of emergency food, shelter, and provisions will always be an essential part of United Way's investment in our community. 


At United Way of Kenosha County, we connect people in need with local resources and assistance when they need them.  This is a critical part of our mission.  

The United Way supported 2-1-1 is a powerful tool available to address needs in real time.  A free, easy to remember, non-emergency telephone number connects people to vital health services and human resources that can improve lives.  Call specialists are waiting 24 hours, seven days a week to provide information about the full range of available community services.
