How We Help
Understanding Our Community
Researching the Capital Region’s specific needs means we can serve the community
in a way that works. With our Capital Region Dashboard and the United Way of
Pennsylvania’s focus on ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, and Employed)
households, we’re able to identify those in need and find ways to help.
Our mission is to improve lives in Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties by identifying the most pressing community needs, finding solutions to those needs, and demonstrating how these solutions are making a difference. All our programs are designed to address the root causes of the problems facing at-risk communities in the capital region.
