Funded Programs

United Way is making a real, lasting, positive impact by creating opportunities for a better life for all in the Mohawk Valley. Our focus is on the building blocks for a good quality of life. That is why we wisely invest donor dollars in local programs that provide services in the areas of health, education, and financial stability.

United Way is supporting dozens of community programs provided by several local non-profits, plus leading United Way initiatives in Herkimer and Oneida Counties. The programs listed here represent some of the organizations bringing the passion, expertise, and resources needed to get things done. Together, we address the key issues that destabilize our community. We are extremely proud of the work being done which wouldn’t be possible without our generous donors and volunteers.
