Medina County – We Are Your United Way

United Way has served the residents of Medina County for nearly 100 years, working to make sure a helping hand is always within reach for individuals, children and families by advancing issues around education, income and health.

We are partnering with local leaders and stakeholders to identify Bold Goals for Medina County, so that, together, we can tackle the biggest challenges facing our community.

Our Bold Goals for Medina County will serve as benchmarks for our success, so that we can focus on creating real, measurable impact. We’ll do this by directly serving people of every age and walk of life, and by investing in proven programs to better the quality of life of Medina County residents.

We know it won’t be easy to achieve our Bold Goals. But we do know we can count on committed, compassionate individuals from all across Medina County – people like you.

This is YOUR community. YOU can make a difference.

We are YOUR United Way.
