The United Way of the Coastal Empire has resources available to help Tybee Island residents and employees impacted by COVID-19. They can assist with rent or mortgage payments by issuing a check directly to a landlord or mortgage lender. They can also help with utility payments when grace periods are not offered and other critical needs such as medical expenses and child care. Due to a higher than normal call volume, please contact 211 online via this link: https://uwce.org/211. Let the 211 operators know you are a Tybee resident or worker.
