Always United

Always United provides opportunities for individuals who are at or near retirement to continue their relationship with United Way and make the Midlands a better place to live.

What is Always United?

Always United was formed in 2017 with 100 charter members who understand that just because they are retired, their work isn't done. Our members want to do something meaningful with a lifetime of expertise, and Always United provides the perfect outlet for that experience. We offer social events, community-building and volunteer activities, and mentorship opportunities. No donation is required to join, and everyone is welcome! Check out our brochure by clicking here.
