Why United Way?


Why United Way? It's Simple.

United Way of Lewis County brings together community partners from business, education, government, faith-based and nonprofit organizations to work toward common goals, resulting in a better quality of life for all. Our bold goal; lifting 30% of families out of poverty by 2030, takes everyone working together to accomplish this.

We have the influence and relationships to make sustainable change a reality. By utilizing resources from corporate, nonprofit and public partners, we can provide immediate help to our most vulnerable populations while addressing the root causes of our community's longstanding challenges and changing lives for the better.

United Way is leading the community to reduce poverty and strengthen families in Lewis County. (Read more about the ALICE population in Lewis County HERE.)
