Mission Statement

The mission of the United Way is to, "Initiate collaborative partnerships to effectively expand and leverage resources to meet evolving human needs identified by the community."

Description

Established in 1918, United Way of Carlisle & Cumberland County is 93 years old. 2011 will mark our 94th consecutive campaign. The organization has had many familiar names including the Red Feather, Community Chest, and United Fund. In 1970 when United Way became a cohesive national organization, we changed our name to United Way of the Greater Carlisle Area. In June of 2001, United Way was able to create a "Community Services Center" at 145 S. Hanover Street, offering incubation services to small nonprofits. They also adopted a new name reflecting our increased presence in the region - United Way of Carlisle & Cumberland County.

The current United Way of Carlisle & Cumberland County provides funding to 28 partner agencies and 44 programs. It also runs a very successful Success by 6 program, heating assistance program, tax assistance programs and a prescription assistance program. They have a successful history of partnering with local agencies on projects such as Pandemic Preparedness, transitioning teams when local companies are closing or significantly downsizing, agency fairs and financial management courses.

New initiatives that began in 2010/11 include a Student Leadership Council consisting of 26 middle and high school students and also a Women’s Leadership Initiative.
