For more than 90 years, the United Way has brought people together to focus on the most important needs
in the community -- building partnerships and leveraging resources to make a positive impact on lives
in Lackawanna and Wayne Counties.
If it requires fundraising, going to Congress, or just getting people to work together, that's what we do.
We look at root causes - it's not enough to feed a hungry family, we look to change the conditions that led
to hunger in the first place.
The mission of the United Way is to improve the quality of life of the people of Lackawanna
and Wayne Counties and
surrounding communities by serving as a catalyst for community problem solving and by conducting an efficient,
encompassing, volunteer fundraising effort to positively impact the community’s most compelling social problems.
