Help Us Identify Quality Youth Programs In Monroe County

The United Way of Monroe County, Pocono Alliance, and Community Partners of the Poconos are collaborating to identify quality youth programs in Monroe County.  Our objective is to create a publishable inventory which can be accessed by parents and youth in search of a safe and nurturing after-school, weekend, or summer experience.

If you or someone you know operates such a program ,please visit the Youth Inventory Link on this website and fill out the short inventory form.

We appreciate your support!

HAITIAN RELIEF FRAUD ALERT

Pennsylvanians are giving generously to relief efforts in Haiti. The devastation there is beyond comprehension.

But those of us in Monroe County who generously support this cause should be aware that past natural disasters have prompted groups and individuals with criminal intent to solicit contributions on behalf of the afflicted.

Please link to the FBI Fraud Alert for information. http://www.fbi.gov/pressrel/pressrel10/earthquake011310.htm

Credible organizations in Monroe County participating in relief efforts include the American Red Cross, Catholic Relief Services, and the Salvation Army, among others. 

Community Partners of the Poconos can also help you find out if an organization is legitimate.  Contact us at: communitypartnersofthepoconos@gmail.com
