We believes in a strong, thriving community where everyone belongs. Together with our partners, volunteers, advocates, and donors, we create solutions to fill various gaps of need.

We serve five counties in Eastern Iowa: Benton, Cedar, Iowa, Jones and Linn through our community-driven strategy, Unite to Inspire: A home of stability creates a stronger community. This strategy focuses on building economic mobility, fostering childhood success, improving access to healthcare and supporting safety net services.

We ask the community to support us by getting involved VIA United Way, through Volunteering, Investing and Advocating to work together to create a stronger community.
