United Way of Leavenworth County focuses on three areas of impact to residents of Leavenworth county - Health, Education and Income Stability.
This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has decimated our community.
Each day our local United Way office receives calls for help from those who have never needed help in the past, mostly for rent, utilities, and food. United Way of Leavenworth County works with our community service organizations and advocate for greater sharing of resources, increasing complementary efforts and information sharing, and possibly having key activities needed by all agencies at the United Way, such as grant writing.
We have been able to help with COVID grants for our front-line agencies – specifically for rent, utilities, food and personal protective equipment. United Way is raising funds to help our agencies to be able to survive during this time. All community service organizations in Leavenworth county have had to cancel fund-raisers this year, funds that provided much-needed operating expenses. The United Way of Leavenworth County board is dedicated to helping with these agencies. Without them, services would not be provided to the families in our community.
