United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community. It is our responsibility to amplify voices of color and bring awareness to the challenges faced by historically marginalized communities.
It has been a little over two years since the start of the pandemic here in the United States and for many of us, it seems as if it's never going to end. With many of us isolated from our families and support groups, the toll that death takes on us can become insurmountable.
We here at United Way of the Dutchess and Orange Region empathize with the grieving families of those we lost to Covid-19 and we want you to know that you are not alone.
As of June 13th, 2022, over one million people have died of covid. If you or anyone you know is trying to cope with the death of a loved one due to covid-19, New York Health offers support counselors, educational resources, online wellness groups, and more.
