United Way has always been on the front lines for both everyday problems and crises. On March 23, 2020, United Way Blackhawk Region announced a COVID-19 Action Fund to provide flexible resources for local nonprofit organizations working directly with communities in Rock County, Wisconsin and northern Winnebago County, Illinois who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of the outbreak.
United Way works hard to identify every donor and dollar possible to move the needle on tough-to-solve issues, our region’s most daunting social ills including poverty, hunger, homelessness, family violence, and addiction, to name a few.
The 2020 ALICE Report for Wisconsin finds more than a third of Wisconsinites struggle to afford basic needs, even before the COVID crisis. Published every two years, the latest report features data collected in 2018 and focuses on the financial struggle of ALICE families statewide since 2010. Read the report and explore data from around the state.
