James & Paula take their #HatsOff4UnitedWay!

Will you join our hilarious campaign chairs, James and Paula Blackledge of Mutual of Omaha in this fun way to give back to our community? Many thanks to them for taking the time to put together this wonderful video in an effort to support local programs run by our wonderful partner agencies.


What makes the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro so special? At United Way of the Midlands’ 2019 campaign kickoff, the answer was clear – our ability to come together to support our community and one another. Hear from local community members Claire, Nicole and Jaylyn share how their families were supported by programs funded by donors like you.


Our metro has taken a major step toward in improving student success by joining the nationwide Campaign for Grade-Level Reading (CGLR), a collaborative effort to improve reading proficiency and early school success for all children! The campaign is supported by the Metropolitan Omaha Educational Consortium (MOEC), The Learning Community of Douglas and Sarpy Counties and United Way of the Midlands.

Everything that happens at United Way begins and ends with YOU.

A generous and community-minded citizen who wants to know strong programs are there to make life better for people in need. People you may never meet, yet you want to know they have the tools and opportunities to build a better life for themselves and their families.
