United Way of the Kearney Area partners with 21 agencies in order to fulfill the mission of Connecting People Who Care with People Who Need. Each of the 21 partner agencies serve people in at least one of the six counties. Each partner agency can be categorized as either health, financial stability or education. Partner agencies must be nonprofit entities.
The power of living UNITED is the reality that each organization depends on the others. One family is likely to use resources at many different agencies. United Way helps to connect these resources for the betterment of everyone in the community.
There are still many people in the Kearney area who continue to live without health insurance or access to health care. Partner agencies such as HelpCare clinic, the Immunization program and Collage help to meet those needs. Others provide support following traumatic or difficult life events.
Many organizations help to ensure education for all community members throughout the six county region. While some help families with parenting education, others serve girls in low income schools with new skills. This diverse array of support for people means that everyone has access to improving their life circumstances through the power of education.
Financial hardship can be one of the most stressful events because of its impact on the rest of life. Without financial stability, it can be difficult to obtain education or health care. United Way funds are most frequently utilized to support individuals and families with basic needs such as food, housing and utilities. Sometimes people just need a little bit of support to help them move past a tragedy in their life.
United Way of the Kearney Area reviews new partners every fall. If you are a leader of a nonprofit organization and believe your agency would fit within UWKA's scope, please contact Savannah Lyon at Savannah@uwka.org or fill out this application.
