The United Way of Douglas and Pope Counties is working to advance the common good of our community by focusing on education, income and health. These are the building blocks for a good life - a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement and good health.
Our goal is to create long lasting changes that prevent problems from happening in the first place. We invite you to be part of the change. Together we can inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.
