United Way of Lake & Sumter Counties is dedicated to helping our families survive the current COVID-19 crisis.  We are living in unprecedented times.  Our communities are being affected by circumstances outside our control and many people are out of work.    Through our partnerships with corporations such as Publix, Seco, Wells Fargo, Community Foundation of South Lake, SunTrust, and Duke Energy we are committed to helping  ALICE families and individuals that are experiencing a financial burden resulting in an inability to pay their bills or meet their financial obligations. United Way of Lake & Sumter Counties partners with  agencies that have resources to meet these needs. 

We are able to assist with utilities during this time.  You must be a Lake or Sumter County resident to qualify for assistance.
