Helping Hands Fund

What is the Helping Hands Fund?

Harvey County United Way fights for the health, education, and income stability of every resident in our communities. We regularly receive calls from residents who need a little extra to make ends meet. The Helping Hands Fund aims to help Harvey County residents in need of rent or utility assitance. 

Our goal with the Helping Hands Fund is to offset, even a little, the gap between those in need and the resources avilaible to them. Through a screening process, we identify those who need our assistance most and help them pay their rent or utility bills by working directly with local utility companies and landlords. 

In the past 12 months, the Kansas 2-1-1 line has received 213 calls from Harvey County residents requesting assistance with utility payments. They have also received nearly 100 requests for rent assistance from Harvey County residents. 

Contribute to the Helping Hands Fund to help those in need in our community.
