UNITED WAY OF WHITMAN COUNTY
Our home has too many problems for one person to solve. At United Way, we solve the toughest problems by mobilizing the power of communities so everyone can achieve a high quality of life.
We win by LIVING UNITED. By forging unlikely partnerships. By finding new solutions to old problems. By mobilizing the best resources. And by inspiring individuals to join the fight against their community’s most daunting social crises
Whether it is a neighbor without health insurance, a survivor of abuse, or someone struggling with mental illness or an addiction, we are working to ensure everyone has access to affordable and quality care.
Education is the cornerstone of individual and community success. Students can succeed, but only when communities and public, private, and nonprofit organizations work together.
Education is the key to getting a good job - one with good income and health care benefits. And it is the key to our economic productivity and global competitiveness. That is why United Way of Whitman County is funding agencies that help children with education.
As many as one-third of working Americans do not earn enough money to meet their basic needs. Wages have not kept pace with the rising cost of housing, healthcare, and education. Currently, 40 million Americans are working in low-paying jobs without basic health and retirement benefits.
Whitman County Poverty is at 27% (2018). Many people in our community live at or below poverty; a lot do not make a livable wage.
For families walking a financial tightrope, unable to save for college, a home, or retirement, United Way of Whitman County is here to help.
