We identify the most pressing issues in Addison County and we bring together the people we think can solve them. United Way funds agencies that, working together, can address the nuances of complex problems like poverty, homelessness, lack of affordable high-quality childcare, domestic violence, isolation, substance use disorder, and a disengaged workforce. We find solutions to fill unmet needs. We deploy volunteers as the feet on the street, delivering hope to people in need. We raise funding through generous donors who understand that social change can’t happen without it.
When the pandemic is over and we return to shaking hands, the hard work will continue. UWAC will be in it for the long haul; making sure the most basic needs are met for every Addison County resident.
