How We Help
Our work is to identify, launch and participate in community problem-solving initiatives. We help more than one person, one charity or one issue by magnifying the investment of many in the community to create positive, measurable change.
Volunteers are looking to make sure that proposals make a significant impact on the identified need and that the organization has the capacity and infrastructure to be successful. Volunteers are reviewing the organizations to make sure each is financially sound, effective and efficient. Funding is based on results and which program can make the most difference in improving the quality of life, for those in need, in our communities.
Being the “community safety net” will always be a major role of United Way. We will continue to provide for those in need, whether it is food, shelter, transportation or physical or mental health related issues. No one knows when an unexpected situation might cause individuals or families to need help. It is also important that we look at ways that we can focus on prevention, by engaging our community in critical issues like education, health and income.
