United Way of Kankakee and Iroquois Counties seeks to continually invest in programs that will improve the lives of local residents and open the door for better futures for our children.
If you or someone you love is looking for local services, ranging from food pantries to rent or utilities assistance, we recommend you dial 2-1-1. 2-1-1 is a free, phone-based assistance line connects you with a live representative who will help you locate the services you need. 211 is sponsored locally by United Way of Kankakee and Iroquois Counties and AMITA Health St. Mary's Hospital.
