FREE TAX PREP

United Way and BancorpSouth are helping West Tennesseeans take control of their refunds.  Qualified individuals have their taxes prepared each year by one of our VITA-certified volunteers.  Together, we maximize the credits and refunds these individuals are eligible for.  We will begin taking appointments for the 2017 Tax Season in January 2018.  Call our office for more information.







DISASTER rELIEF

Each year, thousands of lives are disrupted by crisis - either long-term or short-term.  A home, a job, a child’s education, and or a family’s health are all at stake when disaster strikes. United Way of West Tennessee has been there to assist area residents through disasters in the past, and our Disaster Relief Services stand ready to assist again whenever necessary.





 




CHRISTMAS PARTNERS

It's the most wonderful time of the year.  Each holiday season, United Way of West Tennessee partners with dozens of local organizations to provide Christmas Assistance to families in need.  By receiving applications and preventing the duplication of services among our partner organizations, United Way maximizes the number of families in need receiving assistance each year. We start taking applications for assistance in October each year. 





 




2-1-1

Available 24/7, the 211 helpline connects callers with hundreds of programs to help people find food, housing, emergency aid, health care, senior services, volunteer opportunities, and much more.


Instead of multiple calls leading to dead ends, people can make one call to 211 and reach a specialist who assesses a caller's full scope of needs and matches them to the right services.

The West Tennessee 211 helpline is operated by United Way; we answered more than 6,000 calls last year.
