What We Do

United Way of the Midlands serves a vital role in our community, filling in the gaps between government services and smaller, niche nonprofits. Only United Way has the resources to provide large-scale solutions to pervasive community problems, like homelessness or lack of basic health services.

Our Causes

Complex problems require complex solutions, which frequently involve multiple partners providing support to create lasting change. United Way researches the issues, then coordinates volunteers, organizations, and funding to follow through with the best ideas.

Fall For WIP: Committee Parade and Donation Drive

WIP Executive Committee members, and Committee Chairs will form a parade lane for guests to drive-thru the parking lot in order to kick-off another great WIP year! WIP volunteers (wearing masks) will come to each car to collect donations for the Women's Shelter. Guests are welcome to partake!

Resilient Richland

67% of young people have suffered trauma during their lifetime—whether it’s food insecurity, an abusive parent or guardian, homelessness, or some other sustained traumatic event. Resilient Richland is raising awareness around childhood trauma to shatter taboos, end painful silences, and create healing.

Virtual School Supply Drive

YLS will be hosting a virtual school supply drive for teachers from August 1 to August 31.

We will have volunteers on Thursday, September 10th sort and pack supplies, and on Friday, September 11th we will have volunteers pick-up and distribute school supplies to the school.

Juvenile Justice Jeopardy

Juvenile Justice Jeopardy, a game, like the television show, is played with ages 12 to 18. The categories focus on the youth’s understanding of the law as it pertains to them. As our communities continue the fight for justice, we must engage our youth in meaningful dialogue centered around positive and safe interactions with law enforcement and their peers. We are currently scheduling virtual sessions for organizations interested in hosting with youth participation. We are also recruiting future host sites.
