Our Work

WHO WILL TACKLE THE PROBLEMS MOST SHY AWAY FROM?

UNITED, WE WILL. JOIN THE FIGHT.

Side-by-side—United—we tackle the problems people don’t talk about at cocktail parties. Together, we tackle the problems most people shy away from by forging unlikely partnerships…. by finding new solutions to old problems… by mobilizing the best resources. And, by inspiring individuals like you to join us in the fight against our community’s most daunting social crises.
 
You see, we don’t just fight against our region’s toughest challenges… we fight for the preschooler who doesn’t have books, for the teenager unsure of where his next meal will come from, for the senior who can’t afford her medications and for the domestic violence survivor who can’t face another day. We fight for those who need a voice. We fight for Linda and Rosie and Joe and Mariela and for all those whose names we’ll never know. 
 
Through the United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties' Community Impact fund, we work to make sure people get the help they need now while addressing the root cause of the challenges facing our community.
That's community impact. And that's how you can be assured your donation is doing the most good.
