Ice Storm Assistance

Thanks to a generous contribution from OGE Energy Corp., United Way of Central Oklahoma and our nonprofit partner agencies are helping provide access to food, water and temporary housing for Oklahomans who were impacted by weather damage and power outages from the recent ice storm through 2-1-1.

Due to the widespread impact and immense need, the volume of calls from those seeking assistance is resulting in long wait times. Please know that United Way’s nonprofit partner agencies are working to respond to everyone as quickly as possible, prioritizing the most critical needs first.

Who should request assistance?

  • Those currently without power who have critical needs.
  • Those whose homes have sustained storm damage making it uninhabitable.

How to request assistance:

  • If you have access to the internet, please visit and complete the online form. A case manager will then follow up with you.
  • If you do not have internet access, please call 2-1-1 and wait to speak with helpline specialist.

Please note:

We are aware of misinformation circulating about this process. There is not a hotel voucher system. The only way to request assistance is to complete the online form at or dial 2-1-1 and visit with a case manager to discuss your needs. They will then determine how to best assist you.
