Relief Assistance Information
Since March, United Way of Danville Area has been working to create, and then fund, a COVID-19 Relief Fund for any resident in their coverage area who has lost wages or employment due to the COVID-19. Their coverage area includes Fountain and Warren counties in Indiana.
We aren’t going to fully know the impact this pandemic is going to have on our community until several months from now, but we are going to do what we can for our residents right now. The following are the guidelines to the relief fund. Please share it with those you know need help.
