As a reminder, Columbus Area United Way and Community and Family Partnership which funds Community Response programming have partnered in COVID-19 funding.
Community Response and Columbus Area United Way already work as a unified partnership in building a local Community Response prevention system in Platte and Colfax counties. Community Response provides a coordinated system of support services for children, youth, young adults and families to prevent unnecessary crisis or involvement with higher systems of care.
Community Response will be a collaborative partner in the COVID-19 fund distribution process and provide match dollars for requests that fall within their funding parameters.
These funds help provide for the basic need services to children, youth, young adults, families and seniors impacted by COVID-19.
