About United Way of Johnson County

Making A Difference

United Way of Johnson County is a local network of volunteers, agencies and donors united in the belief that we can make a real difference as problem solvers in Johnson County, addressing issues ranging from critical needs to quality of life.

We bring people and resources together to address the most urgent problems in our community and work toward long-term solutions to create real impact. Whether it is addressing the needs of children, families, the elderly or people living with disabilities, helping our neighbors in Johnson County is a great investment in our community.

Advancing the Common Good: Creating Opportunities for a Better Life for All

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

  • Education – Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential
  • Income – Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
  • Health – Improving People’s Health

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
