UHelp can also help with programs and projects to prevent the damaging effects of flash floods.
People may need support for supplies such as food, running water, and shelter. Our crowdfunding site, UHelp.com offers its platform to West Virginia residents.

We will provide each organization or individual with a crowdfunding mentor to guide their campaign toward a successful outcome. UHelp.com services will be available for free to these organizations and will include project consultations, campaign management, social media planning, and much more.
The offering of a mentor, who will guide campaign producers on how to socialize their campaign, makes UHelp.com a most unique crowdfunding site.
