About Us

Our experience tells us that the best way to help the most people is to focus on the underlying causes of the most serious problems.

It takes a whole community working together to make this happen. So we bring together people from all across the community-business, faith based groups, non-profits, and ordinary citizens.

Your United Way contribution goes to work bringing lasting change, right where you live. Because that’s what matters. Right here in your backyard, United Way is changing the way. From quick fixes to real, lasting change. That’s what matters. That’s United Way.

Old way: a hot meal.

United Way: a hot meal, a warm welcome, a counselor who’ll listen, mentoring, job placement, permanent shelter.
