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.

Youth & Resiliency: Community Conversation

Please join United Way’s Virtual Youth & Resiliency Training Series in a Community Conversation as we tackle these challenging topics in an open & honest virtual forum centered around race relations in our community and country. We invite you to share your thoughts and views on how we can help our community heal.

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.

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