The COVID-19 crisis is the perfect example of the problems United Way exists to solve. With the community reeling from the pandemic, United Way of Greater Cincinnati helped in powerful, impactful ways. Since the start of the crisis we've: 

  • Delivered iPads to help isolated seniors connect with their
    families.
  • Established a partnership with Hamilton County JFS and delivered tens
    of thousands of dollars of gift cards directly into the hands of food
    assistance applicants to fill the void between application submittal and
    approval.
  • Allowed United Way agencies to access early allocations for emergency
    relief in order to prop up these essential social service organizations.
  • Delivered
    hundreds of thousands of masks and bottles of hand sanitizer to social service
    agencies, faith-based organizations, grassroots groups and others to help
    weather the pandemic.






While we work with agencies and community partners to help local families, we know we can’t do it without your support. There are many response, recovery and revitalization efforts urgently needed to help all families thrive. We need your help to tackle the immediate needs for those devastated by crisis, while also attacking pervasive, systemic gaps that leave so many families vulnerable to future crisis.

Coming together with a common purpose is the best way to help our community. The United Way.
