Advancing the Common Good

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

That’s why United Way of Mahaska County's work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

  • Education: Encourage personal advancement through education. Read More

  • Income: Improve financial stability and self-sufficiency. Read More

  • Health: Promote mental and physical health and wellness. Read More

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
