We improve lives locally

Women United is an inclusive, vibrant community of change-makers bound together by a sense of belonging – to one another, to our community, and to our mission.   

By making a minimum contribution of $1,200 annually to United Way, you can be part of that change. Women United is investing directly in United Way’s On Track to Success program, a youth empowerment strategy that helps young people graduate high school and attend post-secondary or trade education.


The Women United network spans the globe and is one of the most successful philanthropic movements of its kind.

Message from the Co-Chairs

Joining efforts with the amazing women of Women United as well as supporting causes that have become so dear to me has been more rewarding than I could have imagined.  I am grateful for the experiences I have had thus far, interacting with children and teens that have truly benefitted from some of our efforts, including On Track to Success and Summer Eats for Kids programs.

Melissa Caschera
Women United Co-Chair

There is something truly special about being a part of a group of women that aspire to make differences in their community. What drew me to Women United was their commitment to the On Track to Success Program. As a former teacher, supporting youth with their education is important to me.
