Our Impact

We’re on a mission to improve lives and strengthen Addison County

Vermonters love where they live. In Addison County, we take pride in our breathtaking landscapes and our maple syrup. We have incredible restaurants, a vibrant cultural scene, and a strong sense of community pride. But there are serious issues facing our beloved County that can be easy to overlook if you’re not living with them every day: substance use disorders, poverty, homelessness, lack of affordable high-quality childcare, domestic violence, isolation, and a disengaged workforce. United Way of Addison County is fighting to change the story.

Together with thousands of volunteers, supporters, and advocates, we are building a stronger community by finding solutions, supporting programs, and fighting for the health, financial stability and educational success of every person -at every age -who calls Addison County home. Take a look at how we’re tackling these issues:
