What we do

Our Mission

United Way of Rock River Valley improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community to focus on our middle school students and their families, ensuring a brighter future for us all.

Our Goals

All of us want to make the Rock River Valley a thriving community, where we can raise our kids in a healthy environment, get good jobs, and lead good lives. And what we've been doing together is exactly that - uniting people to help create the kind of community we all want, with the kind of opportunities we all need.

United Way of Rock River Valley builds up people's lives in the areas of education, income, and health - key building blocks for a better life. We prioritize middle school success initiatives and ensure that everything we do supports programs that deliver results and create lasting change in our community. That's what it means to focus on the big picture - the whole person and the whole situation - and that's what makes United Way about lasting solutions, not just short-term charity.
