The United Way of Hampshire County is about advancing the common good. It is about sustaining and strengthening a network of local agencies prepared to respond to our neighbors in need.
Your donation, combined with those of thousands more, allows the United Way to invest in opportunities that create a better life for all.
We focus campaign investments in three areas that offer some of the basic building blocks for a good life—a good start for children and youth, health and safety for all and resources that promote economic security. And, as the lives of those in need improve, our entire community benefits.

Health & Safety Community Input Survey
We are looking to you for guidance on how best to prioritize needs and services in our Health & Safety program area.
As an incentive, we will be giving away $25 Downtown Amherst and Downtown Northampton Gift Cards (one of each) to randomly selected people who complete the survey. Click here to take the survey.
How do you get there?
Do you drive a car or ride the bus to go to the hospital?
Visit the doctor?
Help us learn more about health-related transportation in our communities by taking this short survey. “Getting To Healthy” is one of many ways UWHC works to ensure that everyone has an opportunity for a healthier lifestyle. This survey is part of a collaboration with Cooley Dickinson Health Care and the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission. Click here to take the survey.

Children/Youth—Positively improving the physical, social, emotional and intellectual lives of children and youth. Your support means giving a voice to an abused child in the courtroom, offering a low-income child the joy of summer camp or allowing a youth-at-risk to spend an afternoon with a trusted role model.
Health/Safety—Advocating for the physical and mental well-being for all. Your support means refuge from violence for a mother and her children, getting people back on their feet after a disaster or making visible those often overlooked.
Economic Security—Meeting basic needs that no one should be without—food, shelter and support. Your support means putting food on the table of a working family, shelter for a night or a lifetime, or a helping hand to navigate the day-to-day complexities of life.
