COVID-19 Inclusive Recovery

Our commitment to create lasting change and help all kids and families succeed, regardless of their circumstances, holds true during this time. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the health and safety of our community, United Way of Salt Lake remains focused on ensuring economically vulnerable Utahns have the help they need during and after this crisis.

An equitable response to the pandemic is required to ensure we have an inclusive recovery in our community. It starts with dismantling barriers and transforming the systems that create variable outcomes in education, health, and economic mobility based on race, ethnicity, and ZIP code.

We’re ensuring that kids and families have the resources they need during this time through Utah 211 information and referral; Stay Safe Stay, Connected; advocacy efforts; and the work of our Promise Partnership.

Utah 211

Utah 211 is a health and human services referral system with a database of over 10,000 basic needs services. 211 information specialists connect Utahns to resources that will keep them on their feet, including rental payment assistance, utility assistance, and unemployment information.

Stay Safe, Stay Connected

The Promise Partnership, in collaboration with the Utah State Board of Education, launched the Stay Safe, Stay Connected initiative to ensure that all students are on par with their classmates, no matter what learning looks like. Stay Safe, Stay Connected makes it easier for students and families to access learning resources, technology, internet partners, and more.

Advocacy

United Way of Salt Lake is engaged in a number of advocacy efforts to alleviate the economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak. As the landscape continues to evolve, we are assessing what the State must do to support children, families, and communities. We engage our advocates to push for necessary state policy changes and any additional federal relief.
