United In Hope.

For almost 100 years, United Way of the Midlands has been the most collaborative, efficient, and accountable way to invest in our community.

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.

Now accepting nominations for Humanitarian of the Year

The Humanitarian of the Year Award is presented every year to someone who has exhibited extraordinary service and philanthropy in the Midlands. Nominations are being accepted until August 23 and will be chosen by a selection committee from United Way of the Midlands volunteers and leadership.

Breaking Barriers Employment Fair

With a focus on helping individuals with barriers to employment, this event is geared to individuals who are disabled, homeless, have criminal backgrounds, lack transportation or other issues. The event will feature employers who are currently hiring positions for this group and other organizations that provide employment resources and job skills training. Please join us on Friday, October 4 from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM.

Resources are available for you. We can help you find food, shelter, healthcare, and more. Don’t wait to call.
