Our Impact

United Way of Elkhart & LaGrange Counties fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every member of our community. 


We're working to impact the one out of four families in our communities that are working hard but falling short.  We believe that nobody should have to choose between food or a doctor appointment, repairing their car or filling their prescription.  That's why we're working to bring families to a safer, more sustainable place.
