Partner Agency Directory
Agencies are accepted for United Way membership based on needs in the community and the capacity of the agency to address those needs. Once approved, agency programs and budgets are reviewed annually by a large volunteer committee. Panels, composed of nearly 200 volunteers, visit the agencies, review their budgets and recommend how much money the agencies should receive and under what conditions. The United Way Board of Directors approves the level of funding each agency receives based on the recommendations of these volunteers.
