Our disaster services page was updated as of 10 a.m. this morning and will be updated throughout the day as new information comes in. You may notice that there is still information listed at the bottom from last year. These resources have not been enacted yet, but they may be, so we are keeping the information on standby. If they are enacted, the information will move up to the top of the page. You can also call or email info@uwchatt.org to share new information with us.

PLEASE HELP US KEEP THIS PAGE ACCURATE!  Email United Way with updates, changes.  Thank you!
