How We Help

We help combat food poverty, especially among youth (with our partners Agape in St. Marys and Mercy Unlimited in Wapakoneta). MAV Youth Mentoring and the Boy Scouts provide mentoring programs so our youth have positive role models in their lives. Apollo’s ASPIRE program offers GED training, and the county public library system’s Summer Reading Program attracts more than 2,500 participants across the county. Through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library 1,860 children receive free books.

We also help agencies tackle domestic violence, mental health, services for disabled children and adults, hospice care and new this year, we’ve partnered with the county’s Emergency Response Team to address homelessness.

How You can Help


When you advocate for community stability you are supporting individuals, families and seniors to become self-reliant and the building blocks that contribute to that self-reliance: education, health services and income. All United Ways are committed to be champions for advocacy.


When you invest in the United Way of Auglaize County you are empowering a better community for all of us to live in. For every donation made 98% stays in the Auglaize county area.


There are many programs that you can help out with! You could be assisting in the delivery of smoke alarms, helping someone learn to read, teaching a child the rules and nuances of playing a sport, or making sure that a family has food or help on a camp out.
