There are 9 United Ways in Maine and we are all are dedicated to helping our individual local communities throughout the State.
You may have heard that our sister United Way in Portland is partnering with the City of Portland and other organizations to respond to the recent influx of asylum seekers legally entering the US and coming to Portland.
While the United Way of the Tri-Valley Area is not directly involved in the situation, we feel it is important to provide information on the matter.
If you would like more information, or would like to help, please call 211 or visit United Way of Greater Portland’s web site at https://www.unitedwaygp.org/2019/06/15/looking-to-help-asylum-seekers/ or http://portlandmaine.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=4295.
Do you believe something needs to change? Use your voice, get involved, write a letter, make a difference.
Whether it is at your local town meeting, or the national level, in your neighborhood, or through your group of friends, you can be heard.
211 is THE place to connect people to who are seeking help! Please advocate for this resource to grow and thrive.
