Improving lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities

Our Work

We help connect people to services in our community through 2-1-1 Maine and connect people to volunteer opportunities throughout our region.

We also work in creative ways to improve local people’s education, financial stability, and health. We accomplish this through the work at each of our Community Solutions Councils - groups of volunteers who work year-round to achieve great results for people of all ages by distributing United Way funds to Partner Agencies' programs. Council members also work with others in our local communities to address root causes and prevent problems before they start.
