What People Are Saying
The Unite Us network makes it possible for SAR navigators to support adults and youth in the Sacramento community who have been or might be involved in the justice system. The network makes it possible for us to coordinate and connect those we serve with the resources they need to be successful and heal from the trauma they have experienced.
This platform is literally going to unite us. Even as someone who has been a client before and needed services, this puts me at ease to know I won’t be jumping through hoops to get connected to services. It’s going to unite and bring together all of the key players, I can’t wait.
Unite Us has been very beneficial for Garden Pathways in our day-to-day operations. We are able to effectively manage our referral system and monitor duplication of services. Unite Us effectively provides the platform for cross collaboration in providing a continuum of care for our participants in their transformation.
Our staff was blown away by the quick responses to their referrals – they didn’t have to do any of the typical back and forth to get updates on the referral. In one case in particular, a partner couldn’t accept a referral for various reasons. But, instead of simply rejecting it, they sent the referral on to another organization that was able to help. This was so helpful, warm and personal!
I’ve worked in family support in this county for over 15 years and this collaborative system is a very useful, effective, and necessary tool in the aid of our clientele. True collaboration doesn’t exist until data and communication is shared between necessary agencies.
Founded in 1964 by legendary civil rights leader, Cesar Chavez, the Cesar Chavez Foundation is a nonprofit that inspires and transforms communities by providing critical services that address essential human, cultural and community needs of Latinos and working families. Through its partnership with Unite Us, the Chavez Foundation is helping senior residents and working families of its affordable housing communities connect with local resources.
Unite Us has increased our referrals and outreach efforts, diversified our incoming referrals, and helped us launch a new program. Not only has it bolstered our exposure in the community, increased efficiencies, and improved the continuum of care, it has led to larger grant awards from funders. Client-based referral platforms are the wave of the future; if you are not a part of the wave, you and your nonprofit may be left behind. All in all, partnering with Unite Us has been a very good decision for Lighthouse.
Blue Shield of California’s partnership with Unite Us empowers us to help provide connections to resources for the people in our communities — and allows us to track these referrals to determine whether they are meeting people’s needs. We must see the full picture of our members’ lives, so we can identify and eliminate potential barriers to their health and well-being. Unite Us enables community health and social service agencies to work together more efficiently and transparently. We believe our partnership with Unite Us will ultimately help make our members and our communities healthier.
Over the last decade, many veterans have been lost in referrals, making it hard for them to get the services they need. Unite Us helps the Los Angeles County Veteran Peer Access Network keep veterans at the forefront, getting them connected to everything they need, leaving nobody left behind.
Unite Us has helped connect a disconnected society. Challenges are everywhere: lack of trust in the network, peers’ ability, and service follow-up. Unite Us connects the service availability to trained peers in the Los Angeles County Veteran Peer Access Network, who can conduct follow-ups with ease. Almost 60 veteran organization partners in LA County means that together we are accomplishing more, decreasing veteran issues that were once difficult to overcome. Unite Us is helping VPAN achieve our mission by bringing a coordinated network that provides us not only a platform but a new method of access to care for our veterans and families in LA County.
Unite Us is an integral partner in our Vaccine+ work in Los Angeles, enabling us to utilize vaccination appointments to connect the communities hardest hit by the pandemic with the resources they need to improve their health and well-being. Thank you, Unite Us, for connecting Angelinos with the incredible organizations that serve this community and helping us achieve our broader mission of advancing health equity! Within 2 weeks of launching this initiative, we have surpassed 250 assistance requests as our team begins to initiate referrals within the Unite Us CA network!
At Kaiser Permanente, we look at the big picture when it comes to health. We understand that good health is more than excellent medical care, and that social health factors like basic nutrition, a safe place to live, and economic opportunity are essential to health and well-being. We are proud to work together with Unite Us and our healthcare and community partners across Northern California to create a platform that seamlessly connects those who are most vulnerable to essential community services that will help them achieve more healthy years – and thrive.
