About Us

The United Way of Guernsey, Monroe, and Noble Counties was founded on the idea of helping those in need. Since our organization was established, we have endeavored to provide help where the need is greatest focusing on impact areas of education, health, and financial stability for all. Our mission is to improve the community by enhancing the lives of our residents in the areas of education, health, and financial stability. We cultivate and distribute resources to qualified partners that align with our impact areas, and we develop programs where needs persist.

Our team is made up of volunteers, a full-time director, and 2 part-time employees. Because of our low overhead, even a little help goes a long way.

That is why we are especially happy to find new volunteers who share our commitment to doing good in the world. Do you want to support us by helping with our work? Then do not hesitate to contact us. A helping hand is always greatly appreciated!
