 We bring the community together to create lasting solutions for a brighter tomorrow in Northwest Vermont.

Through our networks, partnerships and strategic initiatives, we are actively improving the lives of our families, friends and neighbors within Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle Counties. Will you join us?

100% local means that our community defines our priorities.

We make real change in the lives of our neighbors by focusing on the unmet needs most important to—and told to us by—our community. We target our community investments towards what our neighbors need, when they need it. From a community-wide study, we identified our neighbors’ highest priorities.

Our 5 key strategies:

Reducing Substance Misuse

Through prevention, eliminating barriers to treatment and supporting recovery.

Fostering Financial Stability

Access to support, resources and workplace innovations help people get and keep stable employment.

Meeting Basic Needs

With emergency shelter, affordable and alternative housing; access to healthy food; reducing barriers to transportation.

Promoting Mental Health

With crisis services focused on prevention, wellness, and ensuring access to mental health treatment.

Supporting Families

Building skills, knowledge and access to resources supports the development and well-being of families of all ages.

“All of the challenges that we face as a community, United Way is there.”

Larry Rudiger
Senior Lecturer at UVM and longtime United Way donor and volunteer

The problems facing our region are complex. They are issues that no single organization or individual alone can solve—real change is possible when nonprofit, public and private sectors work together.

That’s the power of #LivingUnited
