NEWBURGH — As the government shutdown continues, United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region wants to make sure that federal employees know community resources are available to them.

“We are committed to providing necessary resources and contacts to Federal employees during the shutdown,” said Jeannie Montano, President and CEO of United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region. “We and United Ways nationwide have an incredible resource, our 2-1-1 helpline. Anyone can dial 2-1-1 to find the help they need, including food pantries, rent assistance, utility coverage and more. In New York State, the 2-1-1 helpline is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Help is not limited to the shutdown, but is available for federal employees whenever they need it.”

In addition, United Way partners with FamilyWize to offer a prescription savings card and mobile app.
