Community Partners

There is no easy way to define “partnership.” United Way of Northwest Vermont brings together businesses, government, foundations and nonprofits to do the work that none of us could do alone. We define partnership in many ways, because we work in many ways to tackle our community’s challenges. Through our partnerships, we do our best work.

Partner highlights:


chittenden county opioid alliance (CCOA)

CCOA was formed in 2016 as a systemic response to Chittenden County’s opioid epidemic, working alongside United Way of Northwest Vermont and bringing together other nonprofits, medical providers, business leaders, law enforcement and government to turn the tide on the opioid crisis.


Chittenden County Homeless Alliance (CCHA)

Housing is a basic need for everyone. That’s why United Way of Northwest Vermont is working with partners all across the community to prevent homelessness and improve the complicated systems that are designed to help but can sometimes keep people from getting what they need.
