United Way Network Advocates for Critical 211 Funding at PA Capitol

On June 6, 10 local United Ways and front-line PA 211 workers traveled to Harrisburg to advocate for an increase in funding for PA 211. During the press conference, PA 211 team members talked about their life experiences, how 211 helped them in times of need or how they wished they had known about the service in their time of need. They also spoke with conviction about why they want to be the empathetic and caring navigators providing help without judgement, connecting people to resources and helping them work through their challenges. United Way of Pennsylvania President Kristen Rotz outlined the organization’s strategic vision for expanding assistance and detailed the United Way’s efforts to support more households in 2025. “We want to help to get the word out that PA 211 is available,” Rotz said. “We bring together the best of technology and people to help Pennsylvanians meet their basic needs and advance on a path towards financial stability.” Read the media release.
