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.

Resilient Richland is raising awareness around childhood trauma to shatter taboos, end painful silences, and create healing.
