United Way works to identify gaps in current needs and services, provide resources to address those gaps and monitor the results to ensure lasting change. United Way is the only local resource able to provide integrated services leading to comprehensive solutions. United Way raises money from campaigns held in corporate workplaces, as well as from individuals throughout the community. Once dollars are raised, United Way staff and volunteers evaluate programs and invest in those that are financially viable and deliver results.
