A message from the United Way:
The United Way of Broome County is fully operational and will remain so. While we are taking every step to safeguard the health and well-being of our team with the majority of staff working remotely, we stand ready to assist in ensuring our friends and neighbors continue to receive the community resources and services necessary, especially during this time of uncertainty.
211 Susquehanna River Region remains available 24/7. In addition to assisting individuals in obtaining the available resources for critical needs, our Community Resource Specialists have been directing inquires to the State and County COVID-19 hotlines. Additionally, we have links to all relevant and verified COVID-19 information on our United Way of Broome County and 211 Susquehanna River Region websites. Please do not hesitate to call 211 with any questions or requests. It is quite amazing to see them at work!
Unfortunately the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program is no longer operational. All tax appointments have been cancelled.
Our Community Campaign stands at nearly 90% of our $1,818,000 goal. Obviously, the current status of the COVID-19 response is taking much of our attention but we remain committed to ensuring vital programs and services are available to our friends and neighbors every day of the year.
