The impact of your contribution

United Way of Columbia and Montour Counties
does not work to minimize our issues.
We work to eliminate them.

 

The root causes of the different issues faced by our community are interconnected and complex. For example, people who can’t read, can’t find jobs. As a result, they may lose their homes, making their children miss school and fall behind, trapping the next generation in a toxic cycle of poverty. So we identified 4 main areas of impact that encompass the various issues we faced as a community.

Impact Areas:

  • Basic and Emergency Needs

  • Education and Mentorship

  • Health and Wellness

  • United in Recovery – Substance-use disorder is a public health crisis. United Way is partnering with many community leaders to tackle this crisis in our local communities. Learn more.
