Impact Statement
1.  Obtained Selby Foundation Grant for a new, portable phone system, needed to replace an aging system, and to expand and enhance services to the increasing number of callers who need multiple referrals to meet their needs.    
2.  Designed pre-screening digital forms for programs of our resource agencies, including numerous programs for the Salvation Army. UW 211 completes the pre-screening application to determine if the client (caller) meets the criteria for assistance and then electronically refers the client to the agency. This eliminates duplication of services in the screening process, helps the caseworkers by doing the eligtibility pre-screening for them, and streamlines the process so clents receive needed services more efficiently and expeditiously. 
3.  Provided over 103,000 referrals to clients in need during the Fiscal Year,  a 47% increase over the referrals provided 3 years ago.
4.  Worked with the Community Foundation of Sarasota County to enhance application form for Season of Sharing  (SOS) and to implement an electronic form for agencies to use for referring clients to Fiscal Agents for SOS financial assistance. At the request of the Community Foundation provided two training to case managers, and fiscal agents on use of the forms.  Providing additional training to Manatee County resource agencies and fiscal agents for the SOS Fund.  
 
For the Fisal Year ended 6-30-2011, through our 24/7 call center, we provided over 103,000 referrals from 68,000 calls connected for services to resources to meet the callers' needs.  Our call center serves Sarasota, Manatee and Desoto counties.
Needs Statement
1. Operating support for 2 part-time staff, needed to help with the increasing demand for our agency's services, and to do bookkeeping work. 
2.  Funding for Marketing Materials, such as Information and Referral Cards for our outreach programs.
3.  Funding for DeSoto County operations and outreach programs.  
4.  Funding for training programs and Information and Referral resources materials from AIRS- the national Alliance for Information and Referral Systems.
Background Statement

United Way 211 of Manasota was incorporated August 7, 2003. The agency, previously known as “First Call for Help” was a program of theUnited WaysofSarasotaand Manatee counties. Other initial founders of the new UW 211 were the Governments of Sarasota and Manatee counties,United Way of South Sarasota County, United Way Foundation, Community Foundation of Sarasota County, Department of Children and Families, and area churches. United Way 211 of Manasota provided Information and Referral Services to residents of Sarasota and Manatee counties. In August 2004, after Hurricane Charley, services were expanded to include DeSoto County residents. The volume of calls to 2-1-1 after Hurricane Charley was a strong indicator of the value of 211 services. Due to the challenging economy, United Way 211 is experiencing a call volume similar to that after Hurricane Charley. UW 211 is dedicated to offering residents the most accurate and up-to-date information and referrals to tri-county resources for health and human service needs. By calling a simple, easy to remember number, 2-1-1, callers can personally talk to our empathetic, trained specialists to receive current information and referrals for social service programs, governmental programs and programs of non-profit organizations, including churches. United Way 211 operates 24/7 to serve the community. Our 211 has national accreditation by AIRS (Alliance of Information and Referral Systems) and state accreditation by FLAIRS, and AHCA (Agency for Health Care Administration).Our call takers are trained Information and Referral Specialists, with additional certification through AIRS and FLAIRS. 211 is a vital service for residents and organizations in Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto counties. We provide on-line translation services in over 50 languages for non-English speaking callers. Nearly 100% of non-English speaking callers speak Spanish. We have two-bilingual specialists, and other staff who speak some Spanish. Over 800 agencies and 2,000 programs are registered in our comprehensive data base. In the last year,over 103,000 referrals were given from 68,000 calls connected, an increase of 47% from the prior 3 years. Many callers need multiple referrals, and staff spend more time per caller than in prior years. UW serves as a fiscal agent for Season of Sharing, provides pre-screening services for resource agencies; and hosts a “Shout Out” electronic newsletter for agencies to list programs and events.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

 The greatest challenge as a Board member and then Chair was overcoming a financial crisis and a loss of credibility within the community. While funding remains a challenge we have overcome our crisis and regained our reputation with the granting and funding organizations. Our challenge will continue as all of our income is derived from donations and grants as we do not charge for services. Our services are vital to our community on a number of levels. The first is functioning as “first responder” for health and human service issues. From keeping the lights on to food to tax preparation we are able to refer those in need to the agency or program most likely to render immediate assistance. By improving our IT capability we are able to monitor our calls and gage community need by the nature of the calls. For example in the last three years the need for immediate financial assistance has grown significantly. 211 has developed a web based format that pre screens applicants based agency criteria to ensure that referrals will be appropriate and capacity exists to actually provide assistance. 211 is an integral component of infrastructure for the Emergency Preparedness departments of three counties. From a long term point of view, 211 is beginning to use all of its data to help the community plan for services that are needed or enhanced as well as assisting in determining programs effectiveness.  211 is a special organization with a truly dedicated staff that goes above and beyond every day. It is an honor to be associated with them.

 

 

Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
Jessica Ventimiglia, Exec. Dir.-United Way 211 of Manasota is unique in being the only call center operating 24/7 to serve residents of Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto counties with Information & Referrals for Health and Human Service needs.  By calling an easy to remember three-digit number, 2-1-1, callers can talk to a real person who will listen to their concerns and search for resources to meet their health and human service needs.  Services of 2-1-1 are provided to residents and agencies in the areas we serve without charge.  UW 211 is a critical link between callers' needs and resources to meet their needs.  UW 211 is very efficient; in the last three years, the referrals provided by 211 has increased by 47% to over 103,000 referrals in the last fiscal year.  211 is a blessing to those in need; calling 211 saves callers' time by calling one number for help rather than having to call or visit many agencies hoping to find assistance. This helps them to access help sooner and alleviates some of their stress.  UW 211 created digital pre-screening forms, using criteria from resource agencies for their various programs.  UW 211 does pre-screening for callers to see if resources are available to meet their needs and determine if they meet the criteria for help from the resource agencies.  This is streamling the process for callers to receive assistance more efficiently and expeditiously, and eliminates duplication of services since clients can be screened once and not have to be screened again at the resource agency.  This new system, provided at no charge, by United Way 211 of Manasota, has helped case managers and social workers at referral  (resource) agencies by reducing their backlog of clients needing to be screened again.  UW 211 offers a complimentary monthly "Shout Out" for agencies to publish information about their programs, and/or upcoming meetigns and events.  Our 211 is an active member of organizations such the as COADs, for planning for emergencies, and will provide major informational assistance to callers before, during and after area emergencies such as hurricanes.  With grants from area foundations, our 211 has been able to acquire and maintain up-to-date phone equipment, servers, computers and related equipment to serve the community.  Our new phone system is portable so we can continue providing services in the event our building would not be habitable or would lose electricity due to hurricanes or other disasters.  We are blessed with a small, but terrific staff and dedicated volunteers. It is an honor to serve this agency.

United Way 2-1-1 provides nationally certified Information and Referral Services on a 24/7 basis for residents and organizations in Sarasota, Manatee and Desoto counties.  We are the only agency in this three-county area providing this comprehensive information with referrals for health and human service needs.  By dialing an easy to remember, three-digit number, 2-1-1, callers can talk to a “real” person who has empathy for their needs and is trained to assist them with obtaining referrals to meet their needs.  

 

In our fiscal year ended June 30, 2011, we provided 103,000 referrals from 68,000 connected calls. Referrals have increased by 47% over the past three years, which is a strong indicator of needs in our communities.  Many families were doing fine and contributing to their communities and, now, due to job loss, under-employment, illness, and other challenges, these families need our help to access resources for their needs. 

 

We serve resource agencies as well as residents.  We provide custom designed pre-screening digital forms for resource agencies and do pre-screening of their clients. The forms expedite service delivery to clients, reduce duplication by agencies serving clients, and reduce the workload of case managers.  Since 2009, United Way 2-1-1 has been a fiscal agent for the Season of Sharing Fund (SOS) of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.  Through this wonderful program, our agency can provide vital funds for needy families in Sarasota County, in partnership with caseworkers and resource agencies.

 

While our referrals increased substantially, and we are doing more for the community and resource agencies, our staff has not increased, and some traditional funding sources have declined.  Consequently, callers may need to wait longer in queue to personally talk with an I & R specialist.  We are blessed with a wonderful, small dedicated staff and volunteers.  Some volunteers are part-time AARP trainees.

 

To meet the greatly increased need for our services, and reduce waiting time for callers, it would be a major benefit to whose we serve if we could hire two part-time AARP trainees when their training period is over.  Other needs include funding for Information and Referral materials, and outreach programs.

 

We are most grateful for tax-deductible donations of any amount.   To donate online, please go to our website:  www.uw211manasota.net  and click on Donate to 2-1-1.  Donations by mail may be sent to United Way 2-1-1 at 1445 Second Street, Sarasota, FL  34236.
