At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we created United We Help Fall River; a Collaboration of United Neighbors and United Way of Greater Fall River. Our usual coalition meetings have been consolidated into four community collaborative meetings via Zoom. Our hope is to return to meeting by individual coalition when we are back to face to face meetings. Below are the times of the meetings:
Meets second Friday of the Month
This is the collaborative coalition in town working on health, fitness, nutrition, well-being, mental health, etc.
Meets the first Monday of every other month (Jan., Mar., May, July, Sept., & Nov.)
This coalition is 20-40 agencies coming together to share information and learn about all the resources that are available throughout our community. Great sharing, usually there is a speaker from some new community program or resource.
The United Neighbors Advisory Board consists of professionals, members of the community and members of the Department of Children and Families that assist and support, through policy and procedures, the United Neighbors staff, on achieving the mission and goals of the organization.
The Board meets 4 times a year.
For agency people, guidance counselors, SROs, and health and human service professionals. Each month we have a different training that is relevant to what is happening in the community.
Meets the third Wednesday of the Month
This coalition works with homeless families, sheltered families, people on the cusp of poverty, people vulnerable for eviction and now with the recent arrivals from Puerto Rico.
