People Helped by Type of Service
 
On the surface, the Upper Valley is a prosperous area.  However, beneath the surface, many families and individuals are faced with circumstances beyond their control.  Or, they lack the skills or life experience necessary to make good decisions for themselves or their families.

Think again about the number of people helped by our local United Way and its Partner Agencies each year -- nearly one in every three people living here in the Upper Valley.

The Allocation Process...

United Way’s “citizen review” process results in the allocation of net proceeds from the preceding fall campaign to support a wide range of health and human service program services throughout the Upper Valley.  Funds are dispersed to programs which address priority needs as identified by the United Way needs assessment studies and its Board of Directors.  Volunteers from the community annually review funding proposals from United Way’s member agencies, and then make specific funding recommendations following a detailed review of agency programs, organization, and finances.

Emerging Needs Grants...
United Way’s Emerging Needs Grants provide one-time funding for the development of new programs and initiatives which provide timely response to emerging or previously unmet human service needs throughout the Upper Valley.  Proposals from both United Way member and non-member agencies are reviewed by knowledgeable volunteers for effectiveness, support, and sustainability.  Funding for these programming needs are then recommended to the Upper Valley United Way Board of Directors' based on needs assessment priorities.
