How We Help

How We Help

United Way is dedicated to improving lives in Steele County, so we look at the big picture; not just one issue.  We work two ways for maximum impact by funding 25 direct services programs being serviced by 15 area partner agencies as well as partnering on initiatives that we refer to as opportunity programs.  Not only do we help to meet immediate needs of those who need our help, but we also focus on longer-term solutions.  Most importantly, money raised in Steele County stays in Steele County.
