United Way Launches Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund for Passaic County

United Way of Passaic County Launched

Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund for Passaic County

In response to multiple flooding disasters.

It is in times of need that we discover the full impact of a community united.

December 2023 The United Way announced the establishment of a relief fund to aid those devastated by the recent floods. This fund aims to provide critical assistance to the affected individuals and families as well as case management.  The United Way also activated Passaic County COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disaster) - a multi-sector coalition convened by UWPC that facilitates communication, cooperation, and coordination organizations in all phases of disaster to maximize member impact.

During natural or man-made disasters, The United Way of Passaic County quickly mobilizes resources to support individuals and families when it’s most needed.

Serving the entire county, we mobilize the community when disaster strikes, including raising funds, connecting those in need to critical resources like food, water and shelter, activating volunteers, and engaging local partners to ensure community stability.

In addition, we partner with NJ 211 to respond to support requests during disasters, including connecting people to services such as shelters, emergency food, medical care, clean-up services, and access to government programs.

United Way’s vision is that all communities can anticipate, withstand, and recover from these events because they are better prepared and have the resources they need. When you give to United Way of Passaic County's Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund, you help ensure that our community is equipped to respond and support the long-term recovery after a disaster.
