United Way Invests in Youth Development Program

Youth Development Programs of United Community Action Partnership was awarded a $12,500 grant through United Way of Southwest Minnesota’s (UWSWMN) community impact grant process. This community partner program aligns with UWSWMN’s safety and well-being priority area, as this program works to connect youth with positive adults to help them navigate life and prepare for the future.

UWSWMN initiatives, community partner programs and partnerships will serve 52,600 local people in 2019-20. Community volunteers from throughout our service area review local grant requests and make funding recommendations to our local Board of Directors to be certain donations to UWSWMN make the most impact.

United Way fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community. In southwest Minnesota, we focus on: health, education, financial stability, hunger and safety & well-being.
