United Way of Greater Atlanta has been closely monitoring developments related to the novel coronavirus. Based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on large gatherings, we have decided to postpone all events starting Monday, March 16 until further notice. While we are disappointed that we won’t be gathering for events, we’re dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of all involved. We will continue to monitor developments to determine if further postponements are needed or if a virtual experience is appropriate. Please stay tuned for future communications from United Way of Greater Atlanta regarding all postponed or virtual events.

In times of need, United Way of Greater Atlanta is here for the community. That’s how we started – supporting our community during a massive snow and ice storm that disabled the City of Atlanta in 1905. At this moment, our community is facing a new challenge and United Way is again here to help.

United Way of Greater Atlanta is helping address the negative impacts of the novel coronavirus in our community. We are in close contact with the CDC, reporting out all concerns related to COVID-19 that are communicated to us through our 2-1-1 Contact Center. We standby, through our 2-1-1 Contact Center, to support individuals and families who find themselves in need during this uncertain time.

Simply put, United Way of Greater Atlanta’s 2-1-1 Contact Center connects families with the community-based resources they need to thrive. There are many ways to connect to 2-1-1 including by phone, chat, email, or mobile app.

We encourage you to share with others that 2-1-1 is a valuable resource that is available 24-hours and 7 days-a-week.
