Creating Stronger Communities
At United Way of Howard County, our goal is to create stronger communities where everyone has access to better health, a quality education, and a sustainable income – the building blocks for a good life.
Ensuring our children get quality preschool so that they are prepared for Kindergarten, post-secondary school, college, work, and life.
Empowering people to take charge of their finances to achieve life-long stability.
Utilizing expertise from our funded partners, we help individuals achieve optimal physical, mental, developmental, emotional, and social health.
Our mission: We believe in the transforming power of compassion and cooperation. The United Way of Howard County provides the leadership necessary to identify and respond effectively to the community’s most pressing social needs. Through funding and advocacy, we organize and increase the capacity of people to care for one another.
At United Way, we have a community of employees who strive to do their best and recognize the value of our mission and the teamwork necessary for success. United Way’s mission to improve lives and strengthen communities is fueled by the passion and hard work of our volunteers. People are giving their time and talents to create lasting solutions that improve life for everyone.
Diversity and Inclusion are at the heart of what it means to Live United. To effectively and authentically address our communities’ most pressing needs requires an outward and intentional commitment to inclusion across all dimensions including but not limited to: race, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, physical or mental ability.
Meaningful community solutions require more than money or programs or policies. The kind of real and lasting change that benefits everyone is only possible when people from all walks of life are willing to roll up their sleeves and go where their time and talent is most needed.
