Getting our students reading and succeeding. Building ladders out of poverty. Providing quality health care to those in need. We do it all to drive generational change in our community.

What is United Way of the Midlands?

We are a local charitable organization creating generational change in the Midlands. 

Unlike smaller nonprofits who often have a very defined focus, we take a multifaceted approach to some of the biggest problems facing our society. Problems like homelessness, children's literacy, and lack of access to healthcare. By addressing these core issues, we break cycles of crisis and empower people to build their own paths to success.

Current Initiative

Youth Homelessness

We are committed to addressing the root causes of youth homelessness and providing services that help young people get off the street.

We have a plan.

Our Strategic Community Impact Plan is a roadmap showing where we intend to focus our future efforts and how we expect to drive generational transformation.


We get results.
