What does United Way do?

We serve Hancock, Piscataquis, Penobscot, Somerset, Washington, and Waldo counties, making our footprint the largest of any United Way in Maine.  The money we raise here stays here, serving over 30 agencies and sustaining more than 50 programs and initiatives.  Together, we’re improving the lives of over 1 in 4 people right here in our communities. United Way agencies strengthen families, provide access to early childhood education, keep seniors active and involved, provide supports for at-risk youth, help people with disabilities, build safer communities, provide basic needs, prevent violence, and more.
