United Way + Community
We come together to help children, individuals, and families in ways that create a brighter future for all.
Since 1929, United Way of Southern Maine has been a powerful local force for good and a critical part of the fabric of our community.
As our needs changed over time, we adapted our strategies and support.
What hasn’t changed? We bring together the people, ideas, and resources to tackle the root causes of issues like food insecurity, housing instability, literacy gaps, and access to healthcare.
