United Way

Our Initiatives.

Heart of Maine United Way leads strategic initiatives that bring partners together to tackle some of the most stubborn and complex social issues affecting individuals and communities in the Heart of Maine. These are issues that have multiple causes and can’t be solved with a quick-fix solution. HoMEUW works to solve the issue at its core. With our donors, volunteers, and like minded organizations, United Way coordinates efforts around clear goals. The result is lasting change that improves lives and community conditions today and future generations.
