Asking for Help

The needs are piling up, the hurt is weighing us down, and yet we somehow have to keep going. This pandemic is causing these feelings yes, but it sometimes too is what every day struggles of life look like. It’s wondering how to put food on our tables, making sure we have access to medical care when we can’t get insurance, the need for childcare so we can go to our two jobs, finding a place for our parents so they are cared for and have a community of friends as they age. It’s all of these things and more.

So how do we make it through? We ask for help. 


Asking for help can seem hard but that’s why we provide an anonymous resource where you can call, text or visit online to get local assistance for your needs. We encourage you to call 211, text your zip code to 898-211 or visit our resources database at navigateresources.net/uwng if you need help today. 


There is no shame in asking for help. Sometimes we are the helpers and sometimes we are the ones being helped. Life has its ebbs and flows and we are grateful for ways we can provide for our neighbors, and we are thankful too for the instances we can rely on our area organizations to provide when we too need help. Together we build and create a strong community.
