Our United Way brings the caring power of the community together to improve the quality of life for all of us who call Auglaize County home.
For helping the 46,000+ resident of Auglaize County!
UNITED TOGETHER, we:
Address food poverty, especially among the school-age population
Provide books for more than 1,800 of Auglaize County’s youngest citizens, ages birth-5, through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library
Promote mentoring and provide role models for our young people
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.
