United Way of Missoula County has responded on many fronts to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund—created principally to assist displaced service and tip-dependent gig economy workers who are jobless, temporarily out of work or working greatly reduced hours— has distributed more than $330,000 to date in the form of one-time grants of up to $400 per person. These grants quickly provided critical support to individuals with few resources – food service workers, bartenders, hair stylists, housekeepers and others – who faced challenges accessing unemployment benefits or who were ineligible for those benefits.
Fostering physical, emotional, social and intellectual growth for Missoula’s youth.
Removing obstacles and paving the way for hard working families to get ahead financially.
Working to ensure that everyone in Missoula has the tools they need to live a healthy life.
