We’ve always been interconnected. Interdependent. United. And that’s never been more apparent than right now. What we do together today, will determine how we Live United tomorrow. And if you’re able, give for your neighbors who need help the most.

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.

YLS Kickoff Event

United Way's Young Leaders Society is kicking off the year! "Summer of 20-Fun" is beginning with volunteer opportunities at MIRCI and Homeless No More from 9 AM-Noon and ending with Tiki Night at Steel Hands Brewery. Non-Members are welcome to participate!


The Self-Sufficiency Standard for South Carolina is a measure of income adequacy that is based on the costs of basic needs for working families: housing, child care, food, health care, transportation, and miscellaneous items, as well as the cost of taxes and the impact of tax credits.

Need help?

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