Living united since 1957

Providing our neighbors with opportunities to thrive!


Through our programs and partnerships we are helping neighbors meet their basic needs such as safe housing, adequate food, and healthcare. Together we are providing an opportunity for people to move from uncertainty to stability which includes a steady job, a place to call their own and a better tomorrow.


At United Way, we work with individuals to create a pathway to financial stability. Our programs equip people with the tools and services needed to thrive in the workplace. With your help, neighbors in our community can reach financial independence securing a successful future for themselves and their families.


Youth thrive when they receive exceptional levels of attention and support. We work with families and community partners to encourage and foster growth and development in children. Together, we are creating opportunities for kids to succeed and have a brighter future.
