Strategic priorities

With the guidance and support of hundreds of community citizens, including many UVMers, volunteers have defined five key strategies to guide United Way in its acting, advocating and investing.

These five priority areas are:

Advancing employment

Advancing financial stability through job training, skills development, access to resources and workplace interventions that help people succeed at work.

Promoting mental health

Promoting mental health through prevention – focusing on wellness and resilience – and ensuring access to mental health treatment, crisis services and other supports.

Supporting families

Supporting the functioning and well-being of families of all ages through skill building, knowledge, support or access to resources.

Meeting basic needs

Ensuring basic needs are met: housing (emergency shelter, permanent supportive housing, housing retention, affordable and alternative housing); food (access to affordable and healthy food); transportation (providing and reducing barriers to accessing transportation); and healthcare (reducing barriers to accessing essential services like dental, home visiting, hospice and palliative care).

Reducing substance misuse

Reducing substance misuse through prevention (including developing assets and promoting resilience), eliminating barriers to treatment and supporting recovery

Through the generous support of staff and faculty we raised more than $75,000 in our United Way workplace campaign.

Why support the United Way?

United Way of Northwest Vermont shares our vision for a resilient community. Every $1 raised turns into more than $3 invested back into our communities through volunteers, nonprofits and businesses working together with United Way to meet community-defined priorities and to scale up solutions that already prove to work.
