Mission & Philosophy

Connecting caring people to improve lives and shape a better community.

At United Way of Deschutes County, we focus on knowing what’s happening in the community and finding ways to connect people to the programs and services they need. We partner with 27 agencies in Deschutes County that work to directly impact four important focus areas: Basic Needs; Youth on Track, Safe from Violence & Abuse, and Great Start.

We inform the community about these critical issues through our annual fund-raising campaign and the Days of Caring event. Our theme: LIVE UNITED, encourages all of us to give, advocate, and volunteer. Simply put: Our goal is to raise awareness, inspire action and create lasting change.
