We’re Stronger Together
When findhelp and United Ways and 211s work together, it’s even easier for people to get the help they need. We partner with United Way and 211s to amplify our collective efforts to connect folks to the help they need. We pursue mutually-beneficial partnership opportunities that extend reach, deepen impact, and build meaningful outcomes for those seeking help.
Our partnerships with United Way and 211 bring the community more comprehensive care – from program-sharing partnerships that extend our collective reach to ensuring equitable access to community partners and providing community care coordination through a holistic, person-centered approach. We’re proud of our existing partnerships, and welcome the opportunity to connect with local and state United Ways and 211s to see how we can continue to innovate and work together!
Our Shared Principles
- People should be able to quickly find and apply for social care programs and services.
- Organizations should be able to track their searches, referrals, and response and outcome data to deepen their impact on the overall health and wellness of their community.
- We believe that by leveraging the strengths of both our organizations, we can create a greater impact for the communities we serve.
The Best of Both Worlds
All of us will face a big challenge at some point in our lives, and we need strong, compassionate communities to be there when we do. We’re honored to partner with like-minded organizations such as United Way and 211.
They’ve been doing this work in communities for years – building lasting relationships with local nonprofits and providing empathetic support to millions of people across the country every year. Together, we’re building toward a collective vision where everyone has an opportunity to thrive.
Meeting People Where They Are
For people in vulnerable situations who need to speak with someone, it’s critical to have an accessible option to call for help. We’ve partnered with United Ways and 211s to connect individuals on our platform to a compassionate team of 211 navigators for assistance and support.

Combining People, Data, and Technology to Strengthen Community Health
Often, we share program information (both new programs and program updates) bidirectionally with United Ways and 211s. Together, we leverage our mutual investments in data maintenance – combining our people, technology, and program data to accelerate our shared mission of providing the most accurate and comprehensive network of free and reduced-cost services.

Bridging Care Across Sectors
Our partnership with the United Way for Greater Austin on the Model Community initiative brings together a wide array of healthcare and nonprofit organizations to address the needs of Central Texans. We leverage shared data to identify trends and track our collective impact. United Way’s ConnectATX platform is the entry point to the Model Community’s system of partners, helping community members navigate through a helpline, online self-service tool, or chat and text.
