LOCAL PARTNERING AGENCIES

It takes a community to create lasting, generational change. And that’s what United Way’s mission is all about. With your help, we’re working to give our kids a good education, starting before kindergarten and lasting beyond high school graduation. We’re providing people with the most basic necessities … food, shelter and transportation. We’re helping people train for and find good-paying jobs to lift them out of poverty. And we’re working hard to tackle the problems of violence, poor health and substance abuse.

To do this, in the past 10 years we have invested $15,462,380.00 million into the most promising organizations across The Ohio Valley region that provide quality support in our four impact areas: education, health and financial stability.

With more than 69 years of experience, United Way of the Ohio Valley invests in solutions that work, and we bring together public, private and nonprofit partners across the region to tackle problems as a team. We know we can drive greater impact through collaboration. We know that together, we’re greater. We invite you to learn more about our work and our partner agencies.
