United Way’s mission is “To increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another in order to create a stronger community for all.” For more than 90 years, no other local organization has taken such a broad, objective view of the community as United Way. We spend a great deal of time identifying, assessing and monitoring the most pressing needs in our region. We strategically fund programs, support collaborations, convene experts, advocate for change and foster new and needed community services to address the issues based on best practices. We work tirelessly to provide quality health and human services for our community and measure the results to ensure we are making a difference. We’re committed to improving lives. But we can’t do it alone... what this place needs is YOU! Donors, advocates and volunteers like you are helping every day to advance the quality of life for thousands of individuals and the region as a whole.
