Since 1958, United Way of the Wabash Valley has been bringing our community together and focusing on the building blocks of a good life.
We fight for the Education, Health and Financial Stability of every person in our community. Our goal is to create long-lasting change in the Wabash Valley by addressing the underlying causes of problems. We unite donors and volunteers with organizations who are focused on producing real results. But funding these programs is not enough. We measure outcomes to ensure accountability and results. We monitor the needs of our community and respond quickly as issues and opportunities arise. And, thanks to the generous support of people throughout the Wabash Valley, we’re helping to improve lives every day.
We envision a thriving, inspired community focused on care and collaboration.
We achieve our vision by working with and for our community to create lasting solutions to our greatest challenges.
Areas We Serve
United Way of the Wabash Valley serves 6-counties: Clay, Parke, Sullivan, Vermillion, and Vigo counties in Indiana and Clark county in Illinois.
Our work and interactions will be guided by:
Collaboration and Open, Two-Way Communication
We are dedicated to a culture of listening and an exchange of ideas. We intentionally seek the voices of a variety of audiences, give voice to the often unheard, and lend our knowledge to address our toughest challenges.
Accountability and Empowerment
We hold ourselves to a higher standard, and everyday must ask ourselves, our partners and our neighbors how our efforts will have a lasting impact. We listen when you tell us to lead, follow, convene or make room for new points of view.
We all have something that is important to us, that motivates and energizes us, about which we talk and get others excited. For us, it is helping others see the potential in themselves, in our community and in each other.
