IMPACT 2-1-1 and Kenosha County United Way

United Way of Kenosha County CEO, Tara Panasewicz, recently spoke to our Board of Directors about the United Way focus on the local community in three key areas; health, education, and financial stability. She detailed a number of their programs in those three key areas and then described their vital IMPACT 2-1-1 service.

IMPACT 2-1-1 is funded by United Way organizations and is a central access point for people in need. During times of personal crisis or disaster, the helpline makes it easy for people to get connected to information and assistance.

Dialing 211 connects Kenosha County residents to area resources for basic life needs and personal issues. IMPACT 2-1-1 provides the information for food, shelter, health care, financial, legal, and a variety of mental health care including direct connect to crisis intervention counselors.

Our Chamber office has people come in every once in a while seeking help for a variety of things, usually financial or healthcare related. They mistake the Chamber name for a government agency and usually have been to a variety of places before they approach the Chamber. We are so thankful for the 211 service, as we’re able to offer them a way to get immediate assistance and connected to the right agencies for their needs.

If you would like to enact change in our community, get involved with the United Way of Kenosha County. Champion change and donate funds and your time.

Leadership Kenosha – September 2017

Thursday, September 14th, officially kicked off the start of the Leadership Kenosha class of 2017-2018. Thursday’s session was held Colerget Conference Center. It consisted of introductions of the participants, instructors, and other community members that have been a part of Leadership Kenosha for years. Besides getting to know each other, the participants went through the Real Colors Personality Test Presentation. Real Colors is a hands-on workshop to introduce different personality types, what is important to them, how they learn, and most importantly how to communicate.

On Friday, September 15th, we met at The Salvation Army Wonderland Camp for a day of team building, trust exercises and some fun on the high ropes course. Starting with communication exercises, the group learned a lot from these drills and demonstrated patience with one another. After the communication drills, the group ran through a vast amount of trust exercises before heading off to the low ropes and high ropes courses. These exercises ranged from trust leans to levitation where a group of people levitated someone into the air and placed them safely on the ground. (more…)
