No Fight is Too Big or Too Small. During times of Crisis, the United Way of Calhoun County steps in.

Damage was extensive – structures were damaged or destroyed, families were displaced, and those who stayed or returned were without power, fuel source, and food source. The United Way of Calhoun County stepped in and formed a disaster relief fund. Learn more about our response to Hurricane Harvey.
