Fighting to Help People Meet Their Basic Needs.

While we work to address the root causes of important community issues, United Way of Pickens County recognizes that there are individuals in our community who need our support right now. Through our partnerships and programs, we seek to assist individuals in need so that:

  • Individuals receive help accessing basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, health care, and emergency utility assistance.
  • Individuals have access to a community-wide health and human services information and referral system to direct them to needed resources.


2-1-1 is an easy to remember phone number that connects individuals with resources in the community 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Learn more.
