A message from our Success After 6 Staff and a SA6 Parent.
Thank you to our COVID 19 Response Fund Champions, especially the Jane F. Lamb Foundation and William M. Neckerman, Jr. Foundation who started our Response Fund with very generous donations totaling $75,000. They have since been joined by other local foundations and donors, all committing significant dollars to allow us to respond to this health crisis by supporting our partner agencies as well as children and families in need.

As the coronavirus, COVID-19, presents us with uncharted territory, the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley is currently working hard to fill the needs of our residents during this national pandemic.
We are currently working closely with our funded partner agencies, non-profits, government agencies, school districts, and the business community to come up with solutions to the problems our students, families, and individuals will face in the coming weeks.
We are updating our HOW WE ARE HELPING section of this page daily. Check back to learn how your United Way is helping.
Our United Way is collaborating with key partners to make sure we make the right decisions and that the solutions are efficient, responsible, and timely. We are ensuring the right infrastructure is in place to meet the needs of people in the Valley during this time.
