UNITED to Reduce Poverty in Lewis County
United Way of Lewis County has evolved from its roots as a fundraising organization to a critical community impact organization mobilizing local partners - including businesses, community leaders and community residents - to break the cycle of poverty and expand opportunities for people to become self-sufficient. We unite community resources to invest in solutions that lift families out of poverty in our community. Our board, staff, donors, volunteers and community partners are committed to creating lasting, sustainable changes that transform lives and build a thriving community for us all.
We exist because issues such as poverty, homelessness and educational achievement require the collaboration of all sectors to achieve significant and lasting social change.
To improve lives in Lewis County, United Way of Lewis County focuses on three areas of impact:
Our community impact approach is unique - we not only address immediate needs, but we also work towards changing systems so that individuals and families can avoid challenges altogether. It is about investing in the present and the foundation, as well as the future.
A healthy community learns well, earns well, and lives well. We believe that every family facing poverty deserves a fighting chance at success. With your support, together, we can change the story for struggling families in Lewis County.
