NOTE the best way to find out about the most current community resource info is to CALL 2-1-1 instead of visiting their website.

United Way of the River Cities, in order to protect our visitors and employees, has canceled all in-person meetings and events until further notice.

We are limiting access into our facility to help ensure the health of our employees. Visitors are limited to mail and package deliveries and established contract service providers, unless specific arrangements have been made in advance with a UWRC staff member.

All our visitors must follow these guidelines:

  • If you are exhibiting signs of illness or have a fever of over 100.4, do not enter the building.
  • If you need to meet with one of our staff, call ahead prior to make arrangements. Many of our staff are working remotely during this time.
  • All regular scheduled meetings that have not been canceled will be moved to conference calls. Ask your United Way of the River Cities contact for the conference line number.
  • If you need assistance that is not medical in nature, we ask that you dial 211 from any device. (211 is a free, confidential referral and information helpline that connects callers, at no cost, to critical health and human service resources in our community.)
  • Ensure that you are getting the most up-to-date, correct, and reliable information. Check all information through your state’s Department of Health, through the Center for Disease Control, World Health Organization, and other reliable resources – not social media.
