Community Navigators?

The United Way Community Navigators connect people to vital human services and information about job training, educational resources, housing and food assistance, services for veterans (Mission UNITED) and so much more. During disasters, we become a central hub, providing information on how to give and get help. It’s easy, fast and effective.

United Way partners with FamilyWize to help find lower prescription rates. FamilyWize acts like a big buying group, pulling together millions of people that either have no health insurance (uninsured) and those who have high medication costs or need to buy medicine not covered by their plan (underinsured).

FamilyWize negotiates with the pharmacies to get discounts similar to what they give large groups like insurance companies and employers. FamilyWize passes through 100% of these negotiated discounts to the people using the card to purchase their medicine. In 2014, the average savings was 42%.

Local Child Care Resource and Referral

Choosing child care is one of the most important decisions families make. Local Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) organizations help parents take the guesswork out of choosing care by providing:

1. Referrals to local child care providers 
2. Information on availability of child care subsidies. 
3. Information on state licensing requirements
