Our Strategic Vision
United Way and our community began the transition to a new model of work with an assessment of community needs. It examined the changing demographics and health and human service needs through the lens of health, education, income and basic needs. After reviewing the findings of this assessment, our board of directors identified the most pressing local needs to drive the focus of our work. Read the assessment summary to learn more.

It requires that everyone work together in partnership to find new and innovative ways to address the most pressing needs in our community.
