OUR mission: WE unite our whole community to solve complex problems and harness the power of people to create a stronger Northwest Vermont

United Way isn’t just our name, it’s how we work. We unite people from all sectors to solve problems in our community. We believe that when we work together, we make all communities in our region stronger. The problems challenging us are complex; they are issues that no single organization or individual alone can solve. United Way has the networks, partnerships and strategic initiatives to improve the lives of our family, friends and neighbors. Real change is possible when nonprofit, public and private sectors team up to work together.
