Mission and Values

The United Way of Lincoln County connects people, resources and ideas to create a thriving community characterized by stability, educational success, and healthy members of our community. We believe that everyone has a role in building a better future for all.  We inspire bold goals, bring together broad coalitions, and make game-changing choices to accelerate progress in Lincoln County.

We are community. We Live United!

Our Approach

  • We convene and partner with local businesses, government, and community-based nonprofits to solve problems in a holistic and sustainable manner.
  • We begin by building on strategies that are known to be effective.  To those strategies we add innovations that launch our community in a forward motion.
  • We provide assistance, oversight, and leadership development to strengthen the capacity of our nonprofit partners.
  • We rigorously evaluate our programs and make course-corrections when necessary.
  • We work with policy makers to advance county-wide changes that support Lincoln County citizens in overcoming poverty and achieving their potential.
