United Way of Central Maryland



For 86 years, United Way of Central Maryland (UWCM) has been the region's human service leader. We support programs and initiatives in the city of Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford and Howard counties.

United Way of Central Maryland (UWCM) is dedicated to helping individuals and families who are vulnerable and at risk meet their emergency needs, stabilize their lives and ultimately achieve a better quality of life. By drawing upon local knowledge, data and expertise to understand the community's needs, UWCM is able to identify where gaps exist and concentrate on what works in addressing them, serving as a powerful advocate on critical health and human issues. By encouraging all people in central Maryland to give, advocate or volunteer, UWCM wants to show the true power of Living United.

UWCM provides:

1. Sustenance. We help people get out of crisis by funding programs for shelter, food, access to health care and other critical needs.

2. Stabilization. We help people stay out of crisis by funding things such as child care vouchers, eviction prevention and other supportive services.

3. Self-sufficiency. We help people achieve a higher quality of life by supporting initiatives such as permanent housing, asset building and financial literacy.

Mission: To mobilize the community to improve people's lives.
