To impact poverty, we focus the efforts of many to help our neighbors stand strong - by addressing basic needs, and fostering success in the classroom and the workplace.
United Way of the Midlands operates with the good of the community in mind. For over 90 years, our donors have made lasting changes in the lives of individuals and families in the Omaha metropolitan area. As the city continues to grow, so do we, and we're stronger than ever. Every day in the Omaha-Council Bluffs area, there's someone living in poverty - ready to take a big step. When you support United Way of the Midlands with a donation of your time or money, you help write their stories of positive change.
What makes United Way unique?
It's right there in our name: United Way - bringing together caring donors, community partners and engaged volunteers who want to make a difference. With the help of committed local funding volunteers and subject matter experts, we carefully review human service programs and then invest donor dollars in services that demonstrate measurable results - the kind that lead people toward a safer and more stable life.
We work side-by-side with a variety of strong nonprofit groups, government and civic organizations on important community issues - the situations that keep our vulnerable neighbors from escaping poverty. United Way partners with Community Health Charities of Nebraska to address medical challenges that limit or endanger the lives of our neighbors. And through the 2-1-1 call celter, we connect residents of Nebraska and Southwest Iowa with much-needed health and human service referrals.
When you give to United Way, you're making a difference for thousands of our neighbors in need. Thank you for making our Community Strong.
