United Way of the Plains brings the community together to focus on the building blocks of a better life for all:
- education (nurturing children's potential)
- income (fostering financial stability)
- health (improving people's wellness)
United Way raises funds, works with coalitions, writes grants, recruits volunteers and distributes in-kind gifts. United Way helps people find needed services through the United Way 2-1-1 information line and helps match people to volunteer opportunities through the United Way Volunteer Center.
