Our United Way fights for the education, health, and financial stability of every family and individual in our Valley.
With our local economy experiencing some uncertainty due to the future of the General Motors Lordstown Plant, we want to provide assistance
to those who may be displaced from their current jobs.

We are part of the Mahoning County Financial Stability Partnership and fund 35 non-profit agencies that provide financial support through financial coaching
and assistance as well as job placement and job training.  Many of these organizations serve people who live in the entire Mahoning Valley, including Columbiana, Mahoning, and Trumbull Counties.


Please refer to this list of organizations for any assistance.

If you have questions or need help, please call our United Way office:  330-746-8494
or email Trina Benson, Director of Community Impact,
We will try our best to connect you to the best resource within our network.
