United Way

What we Do.

Heart of Maine United Way Team Group Picture

Today, Heart of Maine United Way’s (HoMEUW) focus is to make a difference in education, income and health resources in our community. The ultimate goal is improving the lives of children, families and seniors in our communities.

We strive to make sure children are ready to learn, families are safe and self-sufficient and seniors remain independent and active. We accomplish our results by bringing together subject experts, business leaders, donors, neighborhoods, and members of local nonprofit agencies.

These community members help identify our community’s most critical social issues. In forming these partnerships, we are better able to address the underlying causes of problems in our community and prevent them from happening.
