United Way of Kenosha County Covid-19 Response

A message from United Way of Kenosha County's CEO Tara Panasewicz

The health and safety of our communities is our top priority. We know you may have questions about what United Way of Kenosha County is doing to keep the community healthy in regards to COVI-19.  We want to share the actions we're taking to help protect our volunteers and their families. We are seeking to be proactive in our approach following the guidelines and recommendations of the Kenosha County Health Department.

  • United Way of Kenosha County office will be closed at least through March 31, 2020.  Despite our office closure, we will continue to conduct business remotely Monday through Friday during normal business hours.   

  • United Way of Kenosha County has decided to suspend our Readers Are Leaders Tutoring program until Mid-April.  At that time, we will be able to reassess and have a better understanding of how to move forward.  We have notified Kenosha Unified School District and our program partners.  

  • All of our Kenosha County VITA sites will be closed until further notice. We will continue to monitor and assess this outreach event to determine how to move forward during the remainder of tax season..

  • A public-facing page with answers to commonly asked questions is also available on our partner website, 211 website at www.211.org/services/covid19

  • Don’t panic. While the spread of COVID-19 is concerning, the spread can be slowed and reduced by taking simple steps like hand washing and limiting gatherings.

We are monitoring the situation closely and staying in regular contact with federal agencies and health organizations. United Way’s local focus helps us know each community’s health needs and have communication with/to local officials. Please remember to visit our online resources (social media and website) to stay up to date on the latest information. Thank you for your patience and for doing your part.
