Mission: The uwmpc enhances the quality of life in our community by helping those in need. We serve as a leader in building a stronger and healthier community by developing resources and creating partnerships to empower individuals to improve thier lives.
Programs: The united way of monongalia and preston counties raises funds through an annual community and workplace campaign. The dollars raised are distributed through a citizen's review process, which allocates monies based on current needs in the areas of education, income, and health. This process also evaluates agencies and programs for effectiveness and return on investment. The united way family resource network uses various programs and events throughout the year to ensure monongalia county children and families have the necessary knowledge and resources to become and or maintain stability. In addition to the in-kind revenue reported on the statement of revenue, over $91,000 in radio, newspaper, and television advertising space was donated for the community and workplace campaign. In 2014, the united way volunteer connection helped provide essential services to the community by continuing our commitment to live united through volunteerism. Many area volunteerism assisted our neighbors by participating in projects to feed, clothe, and provide other basic necessities to those in need through participation in community-wide events including youth day of caring, martin luther king day of service, blue and gold mine sale, and day of caring. Over 1,396 volunteers provided over 5,197 hours of service to our community.
