Supporting human service needs during economic distress associated with COVID-19




Lake Area United Way has launched the NWI COVID-19 Community Economic Relief Fund to raise much needed resources to support the immediate and emerging needs of those struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


About the Fund: The NWI COVID-19 Community Economic Relief Fund was launched on March 18, 2020, to help ensure individuals, children and families in need are supported during this pandemic.
