United Way of the Midlands, Nebraska NE

United Way of the Midlands, Nebraska's prototype, The Omaha Community Chest, was founded in 1923 in response to community needs, a hallmark of the organization throughout its history. United Way of the Midlands has become the principal mechanism through which people can become most fully involved - directly and personally - in improving life in our community. Our mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities. Through 2-1-1, United Way connects people with the local services they need, by phone and over the web. United Way recruits and refers volunteers of all ages, and builds partnerships that improve the quality and delivery of human services across the metro area.
