About Us


The United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties fights for the education, financial stability and health of every person in our community.

But, we need your help!

Together, we fight for a quality education that leads to graduation, stable employment and steady, sufficient income to support a family’s financial stability while enjoying good physical and mental health, all with a solid safety net in times of crisis.

Where gaps exist in educational opportunities, financial stability or health services, we distribute funds to programs helping to address these issues or create innovative initiatives and develop collaborative partnerships that do.

Join the fight today!
