MISSION STATEMENT

For 66 years, United Way of Deschutes County has fought for the health, education, financial stability, and resilience of every person in our community.

We have moved upstream to tackle childhood trauma as the root cause of the immediate problems faced by many in our community; 64% of adults faced at least one traumatic event as a child. We’ve also taken on resilience – an inoculation against the impacts of trauma.

WHAT CAN YOUR DONATIONS DO?

Your donation builds local resilience. We support local nonprofits: 1 in 3 locals are served by a United Way-funded program. We study poverty: 2 in 5 Central Oregon households are below the federal poverty level or one expense away from crisis. We study resilience: we’ve surveyed 2,900 locals. We incubate community movements; we’ve trained 1,700 individuals through our TRACEs initiative.
