Founded in 1986, United Way of York County improves lives by mobilizing people and resources.

Strategic focus areas include Bright Beginnings (birth-8) with emphasis on quality care, early literacy and school attendance; Connected Youth focused on engaging young people in service and philanthropy; Healthy Foods and food security with a special focus on children and seniors; and Supportive Services that meet basic needs and build capacity.

UWYC is a leader in engaging skilled volunteers in mission centered work and in training others in this approach. We connect interested volunteers with local opportunities as well as UWYC's Day of Caring, Tools4Schools, Volunteer Reader Project and Read! York County.

Through collective efforts and investments, every dollar given to UWYC returns a value/impact of $4.13 to the community.
