United Way of Sheboygan County strives to collaborate, increase access, spread awareness for local solutions to the increasing needs in our community.
How we make a difference
We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.
Quality education is essential to obtaining and keeping a job with a livable wage and health benefits. Financial stability ensures individuals and families can pay for today’s necessities and save for the future. Connecting to affordable health services keeps children on track in school and adults productive at work.
Your support of United Way of Sheboygan County is the most powerful investment you can make in our community. No other single organization has the scope, expertise, and influence to bring together hundreds of human services agencies, government, businesses, private foundations, and dedicated volunteers around a common vision of creating maximum impact and achieving long-lasting results.
