What Does United Way Do?

United Way of Mid-Maine is a local organization that creates long lasting community change by addressing the underlying causes of our most significant local problems.  We proudly serve the people of Somerset, Northern Kennebec, and Western Waldo Counties (service area map here). With four full-time staff and over 300 dedicated volunteers, UWMM is able to leverage donated dollars in a way that maximizes the impact for those who need it most.

People helping people: more than 300 local people volunteer for UWMM

We dedicate ourselves to advancing the common good in our community by working with 25 partner agencies providing 33 programs that create solutions to the problems many face every day in Mid-Maine.  By working as a team with numerous non-profit agencies, volunteers and donors like you, United Way of Mid-Maine community partners are able to provide critical services to meet the greatest human needs in our communities. UWMM focuses on addressing these three issue areas:

Meeting Immediate Human Needs

Promoting Independence

Strengthening Children, Youth, and Families.

Each is backed by a Community Impact Team (CIT) which develops an expertise in their own particular area, forms a vision with critical objectives, and works with surrounding partner agencies to fulfill those objectives. This effort results in major improvements in our community.
