What does it mean to LIVE UNITED?

LIVE UNITED is an invitation to the public for us all to work together for the common good in our community.

 

What type of social services does United Way of Pottawatomie County provide to the community?  

United Way of Pottawatomie County is not a direct social services provider.  We convene resources within our community to fund and support programs administered by our Partner Agencies who in turn provide social services directly to clients.

United Way of Pottawatomie County conducts an annual campaign beginning in the summer, raising the needed funds to support the programs administered by our Partner Agencies. Workplace Campaigns and individual donations provides us with the funding we need.

 

Why does United Way have Partner Agencies?

United Way understands an individual or family may need the social services from more than one provider. The Partner Agency programming we support creates a network of social services for central Oklahoma residents. This is why your investment in United Way is the most efficient way to meet the needs within our community.  Visit the “Partnerships” tab on this website to find the Directory of United Way Partner Agencies.
