The community we serve
Community can be defined in a variety of ways—by counties, cities, neighborhoods, people. For United Way of East Central Iowa, our community consists of five counties in Eastern Iowa: Benton, Cedar, Iowa, Jones, and Linn.
Within these counties, we take a closer look at several cities and neighborhoods and ask, what does well-being look like? Who is the least likely to have it in our community?
We ask these questions because we know that our whole community benefits when everyone has the opportunity to have a successful life.
