Steps to Success

The problems facing our region are big, and they need comprehensive solutions. United Way's Community Impact team focuses on our Steps to Success model and works with 40+ nonprofit agencies in the area to build collaborative solutions and foster strong alliances that can make an impact today and for years to come.

Workplace Campaigns

Our workplace campaigns are about bringing people together where they work to tackle our community’s most challenging issues – because no one person or organization can do it alone.


We bring together individuals and large groups and deploy them where their strength and expertise may be used best. Whether it's reading to young children to boost literacy or spending time with older adults to combat social isolation, we match people with problems and work together to find solutions.
