AFL-CIO unions and our members are committed partners in our communities, which leads many to volunteering in a range of community services—from charitable giving to running programs that help families in economic or personal crises. The AFL-CIO has an extensive Community Services Network with more than 160 full-time liaisons who link their state and local labor councils with the United Way and Red Cross chapters in communities across the country. The liaisons coordinate services for those suffering from natural disasters, financial hardship, illness, joblessness, mortgage foreclosure and other difficulties.
The Directory of Labor Liaisons and Labor Agencies will help you connect with your local Community Services Network.
