United Way of Berks County
In 1925 community leaders and citizens created United Way of Berks County to help people in need, address our county’s critical issues and make our community a better place for everyone. Today, our work is rooted in those fundamental principles, and through our unique ability we bring the right mix of people and organizations together to focus on our community’s health and human service needs and to create lasting changes throughout
We work closely with our valued partners - - nonprofit organizations, businesses, the educational community, labor, and our volunteers and donors - - to respond to our community’s immediate and long-term needs and invest our collective resources to achieve measurable and meaningful results. United, we can do more than any one donor or organization can do alone to create a brighter future for all.
In fulfilling our mission, our work is centered on raising and distributing funds to support a vital network of health and human services, as well as tackling our community’s key issues and working towards solutions in the areas of Education, Health, Income and Safety Net Services. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable and when families have good health and a safe place to live. The benefits of these positive results ripple throughout Berks County, resulting in a stronger community for all of us.
United, we can all be part of the change we want to see in our community.
