Get Help

We know that anyone can fall on hard times.  That's why we partner with local organizations so you can confidentially connect to community resources.  United Way Emerald Coast proudly supports Panhandle 211, Florida Veterans Support Line, and FamilyWize!

 

Panhandle 211

Panhandle 211 was designed to strengthen the health and human service information and referral provider network in Okaloosa and Walton counties through advocacy, coordination, and education.  Panhandle 211 connects individuals with resources that can help by maintaining up-to-date information on emergency food and shelter, services for families and senior citizens, health care, child care, services for people with disabilities, counseling and mental health services, and more. 

To speak with a trained Resource Specialist, simply dial 211 or 850-892-4357 (HELP) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week or visit https://panhandle211.communityos.org/

 

Florida Veterans Support Line

By calling the Florida Veterans Support Line, veterans and their loved ones can talk confidentially with a fellow, trained veteran who will provide emotional support as well as connections to VA-funded and community-based services.  Help - and hope - is out there.
