When people and organizations support United Way of the Midlands, they help write stories of positive change for many people in the Omaha-Council Bluffs area. By funding strong programs that address poverty, UWM helps local neighbors take a big step – to secure food, safe housing, and health care; improve their reading skills; or leave a troubled past behind and get a good job. Together, the local community grows even stronger than it is today.

As donors, people can make sure there are essential health and human service programs available to thousands of people in the metro area to help them break free from poverty.
