We have the unique ability, vision and resources to bring together diverse stakeholders around a community vision of creating positive change in Lewis County.

Our strategy is to focus on programs and services to build early literacy, youth success and financial stability for those in need. Why? Because everyone deserves the opportunity for a good life.

United Way of Lewis County focuses its resources on three Impact Areas:

  • Early Literacy - to ensure children surpass key school readiness and early grade level reading benchmarks. (ages 0-12)

  • Youth Success - help to ensure children graduate high school with the skills necessary to pursue post-secondary education or vocational training. (ages 13-18)

  • Financial Stability - to ensure individuals develop and build the financial and employability skills they need to make informed financial decisions to achieve long-term financial stability.
