What We Do

UWH brings together people and resources to tackle complex issues and drive sustainable positive change to help our community thrive.

Improve the lives of children, families, and communities today.

UWH is the Heart of Hastings

We help create a thriving community by:

1. Collective Impact

We match the efforts of people and organizations in the Hastings area to work collectively on issues affecting child, family, and community well-being. Through our allocations process, we direct dollars to other nonprofits who provide direct services.

2. Investment Priorities

We establish investment priorities for internal initiatives and invest your donations where we can address those issues with the greatest possible impact.

3. Serving Our Community

We work with volunteers to set the direction of UWH and provide service throughout our community.
