About Us

United Way of Hastings was established in 1964 as the United Fund.  For over 55 years, UWH has been the Heart of Hastings as the community’s local nonprofit that helps people get back on their feet during tough times. 


UWH brings our whole community together to LIVE UNITED – meeting the challenges related to local health and human services by providing essential services and focusing on long-term solutions.


We work to create and support programs, collaborations, and initiatives that bring together community members, agencies, government, businesses, local churches and foundations with the goal of addressing the root causes of the needs in the Hastings area.


The money raised here stays here.  This is your personal invitation to get involved.


UWH’s mission is to build partnerships to improve the lives of people in our community.


This is accomplished by working to advance the common good by focusing on:


These are the building blocks for a good life – a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.
