United Way of Southwest Minnesota (UWSWMN) unites people and resources to improve lives in the area with a focus on education, income (financial stability), health, safety & well-being, and hunger-the building blocks for a good quality of life. Our mission is to improve lives in Southwest Minnesota by mobilizing the caring power of our communities. United Way achieves these goals by convening the community to address key issues, collaborating to achieve measureable impact, and connecting human and financial resources. Your dollar goes further with UWSWMN because we're not doing our work alone. In 2014-15, we will partner with more than thirty community partner programs and deliver on more than a dozen UWSWMN programs & initiatives furthering the network of human services and volunteerism in the region. Your donation goes far, but never far away.
