Working Families’ Friend is a partner agency of United Way of Greater Kansas City (UWGKC.) We receive an annual allocation after being reviewed by a panel of local volunteers. In addition to our annual allocation we receive designations directed by individual donors who participate in work-place campaigns and elect to select Working Families’ Friend as the recipient of their United Way pledges.

We at Working Families’ Friend are not case managers. We only assist those that come to us through an official referral process. We have trained Community Counselors in many work places throughout the communities we serve. We also partner with United Way of Greater Kansas City and take referrals through their 2-1-1 operators. When a person unexpectedly finds himself or herself in need, and does not qualify for traditional social service assistance due to income level, he or she can be referred to Working Families’ Friend for assistance by a Community Counselor. Great measures are taken to ensure that the need presented by the client is legitimate, and that if financial assistance is given, it is used for its intended purpose.
