Our mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our communities in the Itasca area.

By supporting United Way of 1000 Lakes, you are supporting lasting change in the Itasca Area.

Our work is focused in three areas: 

  • Help children and youth achieve their full potential; 
  • Support financial stability and basic needs; and 
  • Improve the overall health and well-being of children and adults.

All people deserve a roof over their head. Every child should have an opportunity to enter school ready to learn. United Way’s comprehensive approach includes everything from early grade reading and out-of-school-time programming to improving access to job search assistance and career training. Your partnership makes this all possible. With your support, we will continue to build upon the lasting change already taking place in our community. We support more than 30 programs and services across 24 agency partners. These programs and services impact more than a dozen communities and touches the lives of one-in-three people in the Itasca area.

When you support your local United Way, you join the circle that connects our community and keeps it strong.
