Our Work

Our mission is to mobilize the caring power of the Valley & Greater Utica Area by connecting people, resources and ideas to create a thriving community.

In its simplest form, United Way is a social change organization. With the help of our many devoted volunteers, we are able to identify community issues, convene community resources, and fund community solutions. We do so only through the generosity of our donors, the dedication of our volunteers, and the overall support of our community.
