Help United Way of Connecticut 2-1-1 Update Cooling Center Listings
In recent a press release, Governor Malloy urged Connecticut residents in need to locate cooling centers in their communities. We are writing to remind you that United Way 2-1-1 can help connect the residents of your city or town to emergency resources.
When you open a shelter or cooling center in response to the current heat wave (or during future weather events), please remember to contact Connecticut 2-1-1 so that we can list your cooling center or other emergency services in our 2-1-1 database.
