    United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region (UWDOR) is concerned about the predicted unparalleled mass eviction crisis. We invite service providers, community members and volunteers to come to lend their voice to this Virtual Community Conversation around Equity & Housing, so UWDOR can best leverage and invest community resources. We aim to do so with a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and ensure we can reduce barriers to access for all. Finally, we will offer best practices in digital communication strategies so organizations can better engage with their supporters. 

    A link to the Community Conversation will be sent to all registrants on October 21.
