The United Way of Hampshire County is about advancing the common good. It is about sustaining and strengthening a network of local agencies prepared to respond to our neighbors in need.
Your donation, combined with those of thousands more, allows the United Way to invest in opportunities that create a better life for all.
We focus campaign investments in three areas that offer some of the basic building blocks for a good life—a good start for children and youth, health and safety for all and resources that promote economic security. And, as the lives of those in need improve, our entire community benefits.
