ABOUT


Sparking change. Igniting Hope.

Today’s United Way focuses on addressing the underlying causes of community issues — why problems exist. Established in 1957, the Milford United Way directly services members of the community on all economic levels. Our funding makes up the difference between what the services cost and what the client can afford to pay. Milford United Way dollars pay for services to help those who work for a living — and those who cannot — in hundreds of ways. The Milford United Way plays a vital role that tax dollars cannot.

No single group can solve the complex problems that matter most. That is why the Milford United Way works side by side with community leaders, businesses, government, and other service organizations to address our community’s most pressing needs. Our partners have become leaders in identifying solutions to social issues such as homelessness, hunger, mental health challenges, early childhood education, and youth mentorship.

By combining the power of people and resources, the Milford United Way helps to build a stronger, safer, healthier and more vibrant community. We address the needs of the poor and the elderly, of children and families, including those who face significant physical or psychological challenges. We enable thousands of people in Milford to maintain their independence, pursue healthy lifestyles, and stay socially involved.

We’d like to thank the Milford community for supporting our efforts. With your help, we can continue to do our best, so people don’t fall through the safety net. Together we can inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow. We invite you to be part of the change!
