Our Community Programs

The Capital Area United Way not only supports our partner agencies, but we also support Community Impact Programs that help improve the lives of all people affected by issues occurring in our community.

 These programs would not be in Hughes and Stanley counties if not for our donors and the great work being done at the Capital Area United Way.  

Your United Way gift will help fund these programs and help those who need it the most:
