More About Us

Our Work


Making sure that our children come to school prepared for school, supporting them through high school, and helping people of all ages gain job skills creates a ripple effect of success throughout our United Way of West Central Minnesota communities.


United Way is working to extend access to health care and related services that will enable more people to live healthier lives. Health is essential to a quality of life. Quality health keeps children on track in school and adults productive at work.
