Last year, East Hampton residents benefited from United Way initiatives and programs provided by our partners such as:
- 400 residents were served through the East Hampton Early Childhood Council’s Early Links Program. . This is part of Middlesex United Way’s school readiness initiative, which supports local Early Childhood Councils and is working with school systems, early childcare providers, and parents throughout Middlesex County to identify and assist children 3 to 5 years of age who have social and emotional problems before they enter kindergarten. The programs assist children to become school ready and educate their parents about the important role they play in their child’s earliest years.
- 866 residents called United Way 2-1-1, a toll-free statewide helpline that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- 131 boys and 175 girls participated in the Boy Scouts of America, Connecticut Rivers Council, and the Girls Scouts of Connecticut, respectively.
- Of the clients at United Labor Agency—including those from East Hampton— 100% reported they improved their job seeking skills, 69% received job interviews, and 57% obtained employment.
