All money raised in the United Way Campaign stays in the local community to help support the local human service network. United Way partner agencies and initiatives like ReUnite, Beesley’s Paw Prints Pet Therapy Program, Children’s Advocacy Center, Harry Chapin Food Bank, ACT, LARC, and United Way 211 serve a diverse range of needs in our community such as nurturing children and youth, strengthening families, and meeting critical needs such as helping the elderly and disabled live independently, and empowering communities by bringing health and human services to neighborhoods.

In addition to raising funds for human service organizations in our community, the United Way promotes partnerships and collaborations among agencies and initiatives, helping them to work together focusing on issues and solutions that continue to improve lives.

The United Way of Lee, Hendry, and Glades has raised and distributed over $210 million since it was established in 1957.  For more information please call United Way at (239) 433-2000 or visit UnitedWayLee.org.
