Crisis Response

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

Hurricane Harvey

In August of 2017, Hurricane Harvey, a devastating category 4 hurricane, made landfall just south of Calhoun County. 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.

The United Way of Calhoun County Disaster Relief Fund totaled $176,468 and assisted 300 families in need!

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

COVID-19, an unprecedented pandemic, has had a large effect on our community. Workers are losing wages and tips due to event cancellations and business closures. Childcare and educational opportunities are limited. As food pantries and other community resources are inundated, donations to the Calhoun County COVID-19 Community Relief Fund help ensure these vital relief services stay open and accessible. The COVID-19 Community Relief Fund is currently accepting contributions. Learn more about our response to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The United Way of Calhoun County COVID-19 Community Relief Fund has currently received $29,704 in contributions.
