United Way in Wood County

At United Way in Wood County, our goal is to create long-lasting change by addressing the underlying causes of problems. With a commitment to solving critical community issues, such as ensuring all kids are prepared to enter kindergarten, eliminating homeless and improving dental access,  United Way works to galvanize and connect all sectors of society — individuals, businesses, non-profit organizations and governments — to create long-term social change that produces healthy, well-educated and financially-stable individuals and families.
