Our 2023 Campaign Goal!
We’re getting there, thanks you your support!
The United Way partners with non-profit agencies in Auglaize County to help fund the programs and services they provide to the under-served in our communities. Focusing on the health, education, and financial stability of every person in Auglaize County, the United Way brings people together to address those needs to bring about lasting changes to the challenges we face.
Our partner agencies – Agape in St. Marys and Mercy Unlimited in Wapakoneta – help combat food poverty, especially among the school-age population. 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. The United Way administers the Dolly Parton Imagination Library and a growing number of all eligible children in the county are part of the program. Today, that means 1,860 children are getting a free book each month mailed in his or her name to their home.
But wait, there's more...
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.
