We envision a community where people thrive, live healthy lives, and everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

The United Way of Hood County is working to address root causes and provide long-term solutions to the obstacles facing our community; that is why we are investing in the building blocks to a healthy life.  Education, financial stability, health and basic needs are the foundation to healthy lives and families, creating pathways for a strong, supportive community.

We are investing in programs and local organizations who are equipped to help us meet our collective community impact goals.  Our Partner Agencies who are on the ground delivering programs that align with our mission allow us to leverage the expertise and results-driven impact present in our community.

Our work continues to serve the needs of our community, helping to strengthen and improve the lives of our neighbors.  UNITED, we are caring for one another and creating a healthy, safe and strong community for all!

The United Way works to build communities of stable households and thriving children, and volunteers are critical to this mission.  We connect individuals, corporate teams and community groups to meaningful volunteer work, giving every person a way to give back year-round in ways that enhance their lives and the lives of our neighbors.

When you volunteer through the United Way, you are joining people who are giving back so others can get ahead.  Use your time and talent to create social change where you work and live - join our community of game changers!
