Imagine a community where every child has access to an education that will prepare him or her for a living-wage job. Imagine a safety net that not only catches people when they fall, but provides them with a pathway out of poverty. Imagine a community where exceptional social service organizations, the private sector and the public sector work together to do what none can accomplish alone: to measurably improve people's lives in Hancock County.
Through your generous support, United Way of Hancock County is enabling the community to achieve this vision. We are identifying and funding the social service programs that best meet our most pressing needs. We are coordinating solutions for lasting change.
