Bergen County’s United Way helps people 24 hours a day whenever and wherever help is needed. We provide concrete solutions to critical community problems with tangible results. We have a 56 year history of innovative programs and services. We operate the statewide NJ 2-1-1 system and build homes that working poor families can afford and where individuals with special needs can live independently. As an extension of 2-1-1, we administer the Compassion Fund to provide financial assistance for individuals and families in crisis. Our help is direct, concrete and timely.
