Hopefuls is a social media recognition project to shine a light on incredible individuals and groups that inspire and generate hope. Individuals and groups will be selected for taking action and giving back in ways that make us hopeful for a thriving future for communities and neighbors across the region.
What’s Your Hopeful?
If you could help change one thing in Southern Maine, what would it be?
Would you reduce hunger or homelessness? Or increase access to childcare?
Maybe you’d make sure people have equitable access to mental health and addiction treatment, educational opportunities, or job training?
Whatever you choose, that’s your Hopeful — it’s what you’d change in our community right now. And you can turn your hopeful into action through United Way of Southern Maine.
How to Show Up — UNITED
No Hopeful exists by itself. Every Hopeful connects to another, then another.
While there’s no single answer, there are many solutions — and that’s how United Way of Southern Maine turns Hopeful into action.
By partnering with corporations, nonprofits, donors, volunteers, and community-minded leaders.
By changing the way people, organizations, and systems work together.
And with your help, improving education, financial stability, and health for every person in our community.
