Our Work

For 80 years, United Way of Kankakee and Iroquois Counties has mobilized caring people to invest in communities where resources are needed most. 

United Way has prepared thousands of struggling students to succeed in school and beyond, placed hundreds of people in jobs and improved their financial knowledge, connected thousands of people to affordable healthcare, and helped countless people as they faced immediate crises.

United Way brings direct service providers, the business and philanthropic communities, and local institutions together to tackle some of the biggest issues affecting our region. Our deep cross-sector relationships allow us to engage diverse partners in problem-solving.
