United Way brings people together from all across the community: government, businesses, faith groups, non-profits, the labor movement, and ordinary citizens – to tackle issues mattering most to all of us – producing positive and meaningful results.
United Way operates on a system based on the principle that UNITED; we are stronger than we can ever be alone. Our goal is to create long-lasting changes that improve lives, which can only be done by working together.
We are a volunteer-driven organization raising and distributing funds for community needs. Funds are raised through workplace campaigns, special events, corporate and planned giving programs, and individual gifts. To learn more about our campaign efforts, click here.
United Way is more than a fundraising organization. We aim to build and maintain human support structures that create healthier and stronger communities. After taking into careful consideration all of the needs of the community, funds are allocated to specific programs. The review process operates on a strict system of checks and balances.

Thanks to the efforts of countless volunteers, our partner agencies, and the work of our special initiatives: Success by 6® program, the Volunteer Action Center, Labor Participation Council, and the Northeastern Regional HIV Planning Coalition - together, we are improving the quality of life for individuals and families in the Wyoming Valley.
United Way is the most proactive way to create opportunities for a better tomorrow.
That’s how we LIVE UNITED in the Wyoming Valley.
