Connecting You to What You Need
A community can be many things. It is people who live in the same neighborhood, city or county. To us, it is all of these. We work collaboratively to engage the community at all levels and focus resources to improve the lives of our residents. Each resource is made available to community members and organizations to help them become self-reliant and maintain well being.
FamilyWize: prescription drug discount card lowers the price of eight out of 10 prescriptions for an average savings of 35% per prescription.
Aging and Senior Care Services: Santa Cruz County Senior Network Services provides a directory with needs that effect our aging residents.
Community Assessment Project: a consortium of public and private health, education, human service and civic organizations formed to design and implement a comprehensive annual project which reports on the state of our community.
Emergency Food and Shelter: program which augments the emergency food and shelter needs of county residents through qualified providers of services.
As an organization dedicated to the well-being of our community, United Way of Santa Cruz County is closely monitoring new resources and information that are released weekly and are supporting local families in need. With COVID-19 and now the CZU August Fires, we are determining how to help minimize its impact in our local community.
