Established in 1986, United Way of York County (UWYC) was born of the merger of two smaller United Ways. Since then, UWYC has focused on the most important issues facing our community. Currently, our community influenced strategic plan is focused on ensuring the best start for children birth to age 8, improving nutritional outcomes for children and seniors through hunger prevention, helping youth develop leadership skills and community connections by engaging them in service and philanthropy, and supporting a safety net of services that meet basic needs. To do this, we galvanize individuals and organizations to act, while mobilizing resources, expertise and funding.
