Be counted. Take the census.

The 2020 Census is still happening. Have you completed yours?

Filling out the census is an important civic responsibility and a great way to support our community. That’s why United Way of Champaign County is participating in a national initiative called United We Count, United We Vote, a non-partisan effort to increase participation in the census and voting.

ALICE in Champaign County

Who is ALICE?

ALICE, an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, is a new way of defining and understanding the struggles of households that earn above the Federal Poverty Level, but not enough to afford a bare-bones household budget.

For far too many families, the cost of living outpaces what they earn. These households struggle to manage even their most basic needs - housing, food, transportation, child care, health care, and necessary technology.

Sponsor Spotlight: Martin, Hood, Friese & Associates

Martin, Hood, Friese & Associates first began supporting United Way of Champaign County when the firm opened in 1982. Kim Martin, Founding Partner, had given to United Way through his previous employer and wanted to bring the model of community impact to his new firm. The longer the firm was involved with United Way, the more they could see the issues first hand and the more they realized that United Way understands how to serve the needs of our community.
