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.

Spirit of the Midlands Award

In 2012-2013, United Way of the Midlands launched the Spirit of the Midlands Award. This award was established to recognize a company or organization that embodies the spirit of giving in terms of leadership, volunteerism and financial investment in support of United Way’s work in student success, financial stability and health access.

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.
