Addison County Responds

Learn More

We are the Uniters. We bring people together to solve problems.

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.

What YOU Do Matters!

The Prevention Team at UWAC is excited to be sharing their new campaign which is all about promoting positivity and proving that what YOU do matters! We believe in the power of positivity, in fact, studies show that when students focus on the healthy, positive behaviors that they already know and love to do, they are significantly less likely to engage in risky behaviors (such as substance use). One of our favorite activities to do in (or outside) our office is DANCE! We found a few folks across Addison County who feel the same about shaking, twisting, moving, and grooving!

Survey: Our Community's Health

We want to hear from you! We are collaborating with The Larner College of Medicine at The University of Vermont and other Vermont United Ways in asking individuals across the state to share their priorities and perceptions about the health of our community.  We hope you will take a few minutes to share your experience and perspective through this anonymous survey. 

Month of Caring

Placing volunteers throughout the county to support our local nonprofits will look much different this year. In fact, it’s going virtual the entire month of September for our very first Month of Caring!
