2-1-1's new look
Every day, hundreds of Wisconsin residents seek assistance for health and human service needs, but many have difficulty wading through the maze of agencies and often give up in frustration. One phone number, United Way's 2-1-1, is connecting people with the assistance they need.

This summer, all Wisconsin 2-1-1 contact centers transitioned to a new shared database and online public search tool. The site has a new look and provides additional options for searching locally and statewide. Our web address has not changed; you can search the directory at www.211now.org.

Cruzin' for a Cause
By entering the United Way Car Sweepstakes, you could win a 2017 Chevy Cruze donated by Bergstrom Automotive.

Any United Way Fox Cities' donor who gives a new, undesignated gift of $52, or a previous year donor who gives an undesignated minimum gift of $52 that has increased by at least $1 from the previous year, qualifies for one entry in the drawing.  Pledges must be received by United Way on or before December 8, 2017 to qualify.  View complete entry rules .

How United Way helped Jane
At United Way Fox Cities we help people like Jane. 

Jane called United Way 2-1-1 from a local hotel. During the call, she revealed she had come to the area from out of state to escape an abusive situation. The call specialist asked if she would like to talk to someone from the domestic abuse shelter.
