Dec. 2023 Tocqueville Tuesday

December 2023


CINCINNATI (Dec. 5, 2023) — United Way of Greater Cincinnati President and CEO Moira Weir spoke to Tocqueville members about the ways we form unique partnerships to reshape services, improve coordination across sectors and ensure community solutions are data-driven. Panelists explored this through the lens of United Way’s 211 Helpline. 

United Way of Greater Cincinnati has operated a helpline for 47 years. It was rebranded as 211 in 2003. There are 14 call centers throughout Ohio. Our local 211 Care Coordinators serve callers in an 8-county area in Kentucky and Ohio. They answer calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Last year Care Coordinators answered more than 50,000 calls. They connect callers to essential community services and resources such as transportation, child care, rent and utility relief, job training and Free Tax Prep. Most calls are related to utility relief and housing assistance. 

Moira was joined by United Way partners who collaborate to leverage 211 to create strategies aimed at solving community challenges. Panelists included: 

  • Gina Hemenway, Executive Director of Community Health, Mercy Health 
  • Renee Mahaffey Harris, CEO, The Center for Closing the Health Gap 
  • Kate Schroder, President & CEO, Interact for Health 
  • Virginia Tallent, Assistant City Manager, City of Cincinnati

September Tocqueville Tuesday



CINCINNATI (Sept. 5, 2023) — United Way President and CEO Moira Weir and Board Chair Barbara Turner spoke to Tocqueville members about our community’s conditions regarding early education, housing stability and financial empowerment, noting the impact the COVID-19 pandemic had on those areas.

Barbara shared, “The data is simultaneously unsurprising and sobering. The last three years have hit our community hard; families especially face an uphill battle. United Way stands ready and determined to get [our community] back on track, but we cannot do it alone. I ask you to reflect on how you can help us grow that base of support.”
