Because of the 211 Pathways Home Team, more than 300 individuals and families experiencing homelessness in San Bernardino County now have a safe place to rest their heads at night.
Workshops, community college tours, and business leader presentations are components of the Promise Scholars and Launch Point Programs, which provided more than 10,000 students in low income neighborhoods with tools and resources to achieve training and success beyond high school last year.
These are a few examples of the work that happens through United Way. Of all the perks that come with employment in the nonprofit sector, nothing beats the tangible impact created for individuals, children, families and communities touched by its work.
United Way fights for every person in every community to break the cycle of poverty with a focus on health, education and financial stability. Our 211 Team is the epitome of passion and hard work; these traits among others keep them coming back to the phones changing lives one call at a time. (No one said it was easy.) Professionals are often passionate about the cause supported by their place of employment. 211 is a 24/7 hotline offering verified information, resources and referrals for people in need.
