About the Help Guide

  • The South Wood County Help Guide is a collaborative effort between United Way's 2-1-1, United Way of Inner Wisconsin and Incourage.  This guide is for people who may be going through a tough time and need help understanding the resources that are available to them. It asks questions such as "How do I apply for unemployment?" or "Where can I go for clothing?" then lists a number of local resources that can help. 
  • Help Guides are distributed at local school districts, day care centers, non-profit organizations, government agencies, clinics, banks, gas stations and churches.
  • In Adams County we partner with 2-1-1 and local organizations to update and distribute the Help Guide.
