Mission Statement

United Way of Southwest Minnesota:  Uniting people and resources to improve lives and strengthen communities in southwest Minnesota.

Service Area

United Way of Southwest Minnesota is a local autonomous 501(c)(3) organization working to create lasting changes in people's lives and the communities we serve in Lincoln, Lyon, Murray, Yellow Medicine and portions of Cottonwood, Lac qui Parle, Nobles and Redwood counties of Minnesota.

The organization is led by a diverse group of volunteers from business, government, human services, education and the community.  United Way of Southwest Minnesota provides opportunities to be involved with and invest in local communities to help advance the common good.

Advancing the common good means creating opportunities for a better life for all.  When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all.  We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable and when people have good health.  These results/changes have benefits that ripple out to the area as a whole.
