Keep the Lights On

Since announcing our Keep the Lights On fund two months ago, United Way has been able to assist over 3,000 families with more than $1.5 million in utility and rental assistance through the end of the year.

Due to overwhelming demand and to better assist those who have already applied, we will no longer accept applications after 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 11. If you have already spoken to a case manager or left a message, we will return your call in the order in which it was received.

In order to expedite the process, please do not call back if you have already left a message. Please allow up to seven business days for us to process your request. Thank you for your patience.
