Hall County Resource Update
Dear Hall County Providers, We hope this newsletter finds you doing well. It has been an unpredictable and trying few months since March. Since we have all been so isolated, United Way of Hall County and Gainesville Housing Authority decided to start this newsletter in hopes that we can keep each other up to date on the resources currently being provided in Hall County. We will highlight 2-3 agencies each week. This information is being provided to us by the survey that went out earlier in September. If you missed the survey and would like to complete it. please contact Teigha Snowden at UWHC, tsnowden@unitedwayhallcounty.org. Thank you and stay well.
