Medina County – We Are Your United Way

United Way has served the residents of Medina County for nearly 100 years, working to improve the lives of individuals, children and families by advancing education, income and health.

In 2020, United Way of Medina County and United Way of Summit County merged to become one organization – United Way off Summit & Medina. This merger will allow our organization to coordinate a regional strategy for community impact, taking advantage of the close ties between Summit and Medina counties. At the same time, we will focus on the issues that matter most to residents in each community.

This is your home. No matter who you are, we want your voice to be heard. We want to help you make a difference. After all, we are YOUR United Way.
