WHY WORK TOGETHER AS A REGION?

Across the heart of Indiana, nearly half of all households cannot make ends meet. People are working hard but falling short. The impact of COVID 19 and the struggle of families as they are unable to meet their basic financial needs despite working transcends the boundaries of county lines—so does the culture of helping our neighbors.

Our world has changed. We must change as well. The growing needs of our children and families will never be met by maintaining the status quo of working county by county. Uniting the strengths of several United Ways is key. Our ability to respond as a network and a region can bring resources to our local communities.

WHAT ARE OUR REGIONAL EFFORTS?

Every United Way fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person in their community. As a region, our combined efforts are focused on those 3 key areas as we cross county lines in a variety of ways that allow us to reach more people, create greater change, develop broader programs and share resources to maximize the investment of our donors. 

KEY SHARED EFFORTS:

  • Ensuring everyone has access to food and affordable healthcare for their families
  • Helping prepare children to enter kindergarten ready to succeed and read at grade level by third grade
  • Supporting individuals in their efforts to earn enough income to support their families and save for a stable future
  • Creating a stronger, equitable community

DOES WORKING TOGETHER AS A REGION CHANGE WHERE YOUR DONATION GOES?

United Way donors are ALWAYS able to direct their gifts to where their passion lies - a community, a specific non-profit, an area of impact and more. Working together as a region does not change that. We encourage you to give through your local United Way and support what is most meaningful to you. Our work as a region is supported by shared resources and efficiencies that allow all of us to rise together.
