Prescription Drug Savings
We know from experience that families living on the edge never struggle with just one issue; it’s the combination of several problems piling up that prevents families from finding stability and truly thriving.
At Lake Area United Way, we partner with SingleCare: Formerly FamilyWize to increase families' Health and Financial Stability in our communities. Through their prescription savings card, SingleCare makes prescription medications more affordable for all families, so that no one ever has to make the hard choice between the meds they need and other basics like food or rent.
2-1-1 is a referral and information helpline and website that connects people from all communities and ages to the essential health and human services they need, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You'll be connected to a community resource specialist who can connect you with local organizations that provide critical services that can improve and save lives.
My Free Taxes
United Way has partnered with industry leader H&R Block to help people easily and accurately file their federal and state returns through MyFreeTaxes®.
MyFreeTaxes is the only free, national, online tax filing product offered by a nonprofit because United Way fights for the financial stability of every person in every community. United Way is committed to ensuring that people can easily and accurately file taxes to receive the refunds they deserve.
