October Community Pulse Report, A Year In Review

(October 28, 2021) COVID-19, health insurance, child care, learning equity, unemployment, evictions, the digital divide and the list goes on – click here to view the October Community Pulse Report, a year in review!

In September 2020, the United Way of SWPA in partnership with Allies for Children and the POISE Foundation launched the Community Pulse Report to start tracking emerging needs and trends in our 5-county region. One year later, we are still in the midst of a pandemic where people are learning how to cope and manage through new challenges. While the pandemic has exacerbated certain hardships, it has also shone a light on existing inequities throughout the region that require action to build a better future. October’s report both looks back at pieces previously shared and provides the most up-to-date information available on new themes.

As we continue to provide the Community Pulse Report, we want to be sure to report on the information you want to know more about. Please take a moment to complete this brief survey to help us better focus future reports so that, through data, we can support the great work you are doing.
