Uniting people and resources together
to build thriving and resilient communities

We are your United Way

Building Community Capacity

Our goal at the United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley is to be able to quickly respond to community needs and provide financial and in-kind resources to our community partners while serving as a facilitator, convener and catalyst for enduring social change in our Mid-Valley region.

Creating Housing For All

In our Mid-Valley region, we are experiencing a crisis around housing and homelessness. Because of this, we are stepping up and responding to the need for safe, stable, affordable housing in our region by investing local dollars raised into community impact projects.

Strengthening Children and Families

The United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley spearheads several programs that are designed to transform children’s lives in their communities. We strive to see a community where all children grow up with hope and the chance to be successful. 

Meeting Basic Needs

At the United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley, we are investing in programs in our local communities as we leverage dollars for deeper effectiveness especially when it comes to meeting basic needs. These programs respond to our neighbors in need with valuable resources and support.

What’s Raised Here, Stays Here

 At the United Way, we are able to address issues with tangible, lasting solutions. Together, we will improve lives right here in the Willamette Valley by mobilizing the caring power of our community to support our friends and neighbors in need.

We use your much appreciated donations where they are needed most – providing help and hope to residents of Marion, Polk and Yamhill counties.

We strive to go beyond temporary fixes to create lasting change in the three-county area. By bringing people and organizations together around innovative solutions, we impact thousands of lives every year.

By bringing people and organizations together around innovative solutions, we impact thousands of lives every year. All of our work, whether it be to provide low barrier shelter to women off the streets, or to supply before or after support to students affected by poverty, or developing affordable housing to seniors at risk of homelessness, flows from our mission.
