United Way Operations / Events / Resources

United Way of Greater Houston is monitoring the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Greater Houston area. The safety and well-being of our clients, donors, staff, and volunteers is one of our top priorities. 

United Way of Greater Houston is still operating with normal business hours and staff are able to answer your questions via phone and email. If you have a question or need to speak with someone and do not have a direct contact, please call 713-685-2300 and leave a message. Your message will be returned by the appropriate staff member. You may also reach out to uofgreaterhouston@unitedwayhouston.org.

United Way of Greater Houston Events 
We are working to limit any potential risk by canceling, postponing, and rescheduling certain meetings and events. Out of an abundance of caution, we have canceled events until further notice. We are monitoring the situation week by week and will announce any fupdates as soon as possible.

Information and updates on donor events can be found at https://www.unitedwayhouston.org/donors/events/.

United Way Community Resource Center 
The United Way Community Resource Center will be closed until further notice beginning March 13, 2020. Please contact your event or meeting organizer for information about specific meetings and events. 

211 Texas/United Way HELPLINE
As always, our 211 Texas/United Way HELPLINE is here answering the call from our neighbors in need. 211 provides information about community resources and connects people to basic needs assistance and other social services, for which demand is likely to increase. You can also search the 211 database online at http://referral.unitedwayhouston.org/. 211 is not the number to call for emergencies or if someone suspects they have COVID-19. Those concerned about or affected by COVID-19 should follow the Center for Disease Control guidelines.
