2015 WAS BUSY FOR 211

By Amy Fluno, United Way's 2-1-1 Director 

 

It's hard to believe that 2015 is over already; it feels like it just started! It was another busy year at United Way's 2-1-1. Our call volume went down slightly but the calls are still as complex and challenging as ever. We took 3,644 calls in 2015 and had an increase of first time callers. It was nice to hear them say how helpful we were to them after they had called other places without results. We take pride in helping those - in and around our community - find the resources they need to make the situation they are facing a little easier.

 

Here are the top five referrals for Wood County for 2015:
1. Food Pantries
2. Rent Payment Assistance
3. Electric Service Payment Assistance
4. Low Income/Subsidized Private Rental Housing
5. Gas Money

 

We also receive calls where we are unable to help; these are recorded as "unmet needs." This helps us track the resources that our community is not currently offering to the public.

 

The top five "Unmet Needs" in Wood County for 2015 are:
1. Community Shelter
2. Gas Money
3. Automobile Purchase Loans
4. Automobile Repair Loans
5. Moving Expense Assistance

 

Thank you for a great 2015. We look forward to 2016 and all the challenging and exciting new adventures it will bring!
