United Way of Lancaster County
Description of Service
For over 90 years United Way of Lancaster County has helped make change happen across Lancaster County by providing opportunities for community members to give, advocate, and volunteer. United Way’s Community Impact Fund focuses donor investments that address the underlying causes of the County’s most serious problems and work to achieve four bold goals. By 2025, United Way is marshalling resources so that (1) Every child will enter kindergarten ready to learn, (2) All adults will have the necessary post-secondary credentials they need to get a good job, (3) We have decreased poverty by 50%, and (4) Everyone has access to a doctor, dentist, and mental health professional. In addition to offering a 2-1-1 information and referral service, a volunteer center, and free tax preparation services for low income workers, United Way fosters collaborations between nonprofit organizations, healthcare providers, schools, faith-based groups, businesses, and government. United Way and its supporters create lasting change in Lancaster County, achieving results that no single organization or sector could accomplish alone.
