We are also working with other United Ways in BC and United Way Canada to ensure we are informed of actions being taken across our regions and share ideas on how to support the people we serve.
Our partnership with 211 services is integral at a time such as this. We know that bc211 is regularly being updated with relevant, reliable links to provide essential information on the COVID-19 situation. Bc211.ca is an important social service resource and referral platform, available all across Northern BC 24/7, that works to keep emergent issues at the forefront and provide free, public information at all times. Please visit www.bc211.ca for help whenever you need it.
Externally, UWNBC is providing resources to agencies, businesses, corporates and other community stakeholders (like bc211.ca) to help inform and support those who we live and work with. We are working to connect with agencies around our region as soon as possible to see if there are any emerging needs that we can help with. As community connectors, we want to listen to the needs of those around us and do our best to connect resources where they are needed.
Here for community, with community.
