At United Way of Greater Fall River we are working to connect community members with the resources they need to thrive.  You are a key component of our community as you give your time, talent and treasure to support Somerset families.  THANK YOU for making a difference in individuals lives, often when they need it most.  To support you in your service to the community we wanted to share a few resources that might be helpful as you interact with individuals:
Mass 211 is an easy to remember telephone number that connects callers to information about critical health and human services available in their community. It serves as a resource for finding government benefits and services, nonprofit organizations, support groups, volunteer opportunities, donation programs, and other local resources. Always a confidential call, Mass 211 maintains the integrity of the 9-1-1 system saving that vital community resource for life and death emergencies.
Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Mass 211 is an easy way to find or give help in your community.
