San Angelo, TX — In San Angelo and the Concho Valley, people commonly turn to nonprofits, religious organizations, and state agencies for help during times of economic trouble. The United Way of the Concho Valley helps by providing people with information that best fits their immediate needs while also providing funds to many of the organizations serving the area.
“We fund local agencies and other nonprofits who are providing direct services,” says Ashley Ammons, President and CEO of United Way of the Concho Valley, “The beauty of the united way is that our funds are not restricted, so agencies are able to do what they need to do to continue their mission.”
With so many organizations providing resources, it can get confusing for people to find the help they need, or even finding what resources are available.
“I would definitely say, ‘Call 2-1-1’. That’s all individuals have to do is call 2-1-1 and click option six. That is specifically for resources in regards to Covid-19. Looking for rental assistance, whether it’s utilities, it’s medication, childcare, whatever it may be,” said Ammons.
Ammons stressed the need, especially now, for giving from those who are able to do so.
