United Way of Nevada County (UWNC) works to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community. United Way raises money from multiple sources to help Nevada County residents with their Basic Needs (Food, Shelter and Access to Health Care) and constantly analyzes how best to use it to address the largest needs in Nevada County. Funding may be allocated to partners who are focused on our impact areas, or on programs.

When gaps in services in the community are identified, the UWNC Community Impact Committee works on the best way to help. In 2016 it was determined that many community members suffering from food insecurity find it difficult to get to the food distributions offered during the week. For several months, UWNC collaborated with Interfaith Food Ministry, a United Way partner, to develop a program to support the individuals and families challenged with food insecurity. Another gap in services was found recently, so UWNC purchased a van for Hospitality House’s Street Outreach Program.
