Who We Are

RIVER REGION UNITED WAY is a locally-based nonprofit organization dedicated to identifying community needs, solving problems and strengthening communities in our five-county River Region.


We do this by being the Hand Raisers, the Change Makers and the Problem Solvers in the communities we serve. With our community partners, we work to create real, lasting change. We support community programs and initiatives that address community needs or gaps in services, and support our goal of preventing problems from happening in the first place.

Our Focus Areas

River Region United Way believes that everyone should have the opportunity for a good life and that the building blocks for a good quality of life are Health, Education, and Financial Stability. Our goals and our work are centered around these four key focus areas.

LIVE UNITED is our call to action for the entire community. We believe our communities, working together, can achieve more than any single person or organization could alone. We are advancing the common good in the River Region by providing ways for people to GIVE, ADVOCATE, and VOLUNTEER in support of our work.

Community Needs Assessment

River Region United Way regularly conducts Community Needs Assessments which we share with our community partners -- including, but not limited to, a variety of county, municipal and nonprofit organizations -- to facilitate collaboration and bring about positive and lasting change. Our studies have led to the establishment of organizations like Health Services, Inc. (1963), Goodwill Industries (1966), the Information and Referral Service (1977), the Montgomery Area Food Bank (1986), Success By Six (1992) and many others.

Needs Assessment

We invite you to LIVE UNITED with us -- get involved! Give, Advocate or Volunteer for the causes and issues that you care about most. When you reach out a hand to one, you can influence the condition of all. It takes all of us working together to create a brighter future for our River Region.
