Who We Are and What We Do
United Way of the Capital Region (UWCR) works year-round to change lives in Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties. We do this by identifying long-term and pressing community needs, finding solutions to address those needs and providing results that show how we are making a difference.
As part of UWCR’s commitment to have a greater impact on solving long-term and emerging community problems, we are focusing our efforts on increasing available financial and non-financial resources, building stronger community partnerships and providing measurable results.
Review our brochure, UWCR - A Tradition of Caring, to see how we are working to change lives and our community for the better.
United Way of the Capital Region’s mission is to help change lives in Dauphin, Cumberland and Perry counties.
We do this by raising money through a community-wide campaign, identifying long-term and emerging needs, finding solutions to address those needs, and measuring results that show donors how their dollars are making a difference.
In 2007, United Way of the Capital Region board members, community leaders, volunteers and staff began assessing the effectiveness of our work and developing a direction for the organization for the next three years. Remaining relevant to the changing needs of our community was our utmost concern. We completed our work in 2008. Review a summary of our strategic plan.
To keep our donors, friends and the community up-to-date on the progress of our work, we recently created a brief status report. Click here for an update on our work associated with our strategic plan: Strategic Plan Update.
