United Way of Greater St. Louis has launched a public survey seeking input from local residents about the needs and issues they face and their vision for the future of the St. Louis region. The survey can be taken online at HelpingPeople.org. All answers are anonymous. The survey will close on May 31.
The survey is part of a comprehensive community needs assessment United Way is conducting this year to identify and prioritize local health and human services needs of residents in the 16-county region it serves. The assessment focuses on United Way’s key impact areas of education, health, financial stability, basic needs and strengthening communities.
“There are wide and varied needs in our community, and through the assessment we hope to identify the prevalent, critical and ongoing issues local people face that prevent them from reaching their full potential,” said Julie Russell, chief impact officer, United Way of Greater St. Louis.
