United Way of the Tri-Valley Area announces 2019 Community Partners

FARMINGTON - At the beginning of each year, United Way of the Tri-Valley Area routinely gathers volunteer community members to meet with the difficult task of investing in Community Partners with the money raised throughout the year. It’s difficult in that there is often more need than there is money to invest, and this year is no exception. This year’s Community Investment Team read applications, listened to presentations, and asked the tough questions before successfully deliberating and deciding on funding investments. United Way is honored to support the good work in this community through the following 2019 Community Partners:

Care and Share Food Closet
Catholic Charities
The Children’s Center
Community Dental
Franklin County Children’s Task Force
Healthy Community Coalition
Literacy Volunteers of Franklin and Somerset Counties
Rural Community Action Ministry
Safe Voices
Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services – CAC
Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services – School
United Methodist Economic Ministry
Western Maine Community Action
Western Maine Homeless Outreach
Western Maine Transportation Services

In honor of February being 211 Month, it’s important to note that all of the services these partners provide, as well as any organization providing human services offerings, can be found via 211; by calling, texting or looking on line.
