United Way of Central Massachusetts

Partner Agencies

In order to create the greatest positive change, we first identify the immediate and most crucial needs of the Central Massachusetts community. With the help of many volunteers, needs and impact areas were identified.

Working in collaboration with community organizations, United Way seeks to address these issues and create positive change and results in these areas. Through our collaborations with the Partner Agencies listed below, Central Massachusetts residents are more able to lead self-sufficient and successful lives.

2013 Funded Programs

The agencies and programs listed below make up the nearly $3.2 million in program funding that United Way granted in central Massachusetts this year. Each of the programs listed are working to provide services in one or more of the three basic building blocks for a good life: EDUCATION, HEALTH, and FAMILY STABILITY, or are helping the most vulnerable among us with immediate needs such as food, housing and crisis intervention through our Safety Net funding. In total, United Way of Central Massachusetts will invest more than $5.4 million in the community this year, through these and dozens of other programs.
