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.

Mission Statement

United Way of the Capital Region’s mission is to improve lives in Dauphin, Cumberland and Perry counties by identifying the most pressing community needs, finding solutions to those needs, and demonstrating how these solutions are making a difference.

Strategic Plan

In 2013, United Way of the Capital Region sought input for our strategic plan. We are pleased to report that an initial draft of the will be complete in early 2014. Thank you to our volunteers, leaders, donors, program partners and business and community friends for your thoughtful insight. More than 1,800 people completed surveys and/or participated in focus groups.

This is both an exciting and challenging time for our United Way. As the needs and resources within our community change, so does our organization. UWCR’s strategic plan will ensure our work is done with purpose and impact. 

We will continue to share our progress through updates on this site.
