At the UWWEC we believe that the best work is done when we join together. Since we join together to celebrate our victories, we must also join together to fight against the issues our community faces. During our last campaign season, our motto was "I Live United Against ____". Everyone has a cause that is close to their heart and we wanted to join in the fight with them to improve our community. Together with our agencies, community members, partners, and board members we explored the different issues that we could all live against.
Our Mission is to improve lives by uniting people and resources. We seek to make a concrete, measurable impact by understanding and addressing our community's most complex challenges. We believe that no single organization can do this alone, and United Way of West Ellis County, therefore, works in partnership with individuals, non-profits, corporations, and public entities to mobilize resources, promote collaboration, and support programs that can together make a significant difference for our comminity. We focus on ensuring that all who come to us and our partner agencies receive the help that they need.
