United Way of Reno County's mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of the community to advance the common good. Our focus is on Education, Income and Health as these are the building blocks for a good quality of life. We are a social change organization that creates social change for our community. We do that in a couple of different ways; our community impact work and supporting nonprofits through fundraising for them.
Collective Impact is our approach to community problem solving.
No one organization alone in isolation can solve complex community problems. Collective Impact requires that everyone work together in partnership – businesses, city and state government, schools, churches, foundations, and nonprofit organizations – to tackle our most pressing challenges and develop lasting solutions. Large scale change happens when we all work together toward a common goal, share our resources, hold mutually reinforcing activities and continually communicate to make true progress.
Fair and equitable distribution of resources
United Way is predominantly a volunteer-led organization that matches the resources of people in the community who care, to people in the community who need help and resources. UWRC currently supports 27 local nonprofit organizations, streamlining the efficient delivery of human and health services.
