Creating a better life for everyone in Northumberland County.

Northumberland United Way has been changing the lives of people living in Northumberland County since 1969.

As the largest non-governmental funder of locally-based health and social services in Northumberland County, we are dedicated to creating opportunities to improve lives and create a lasting, positive impact.

We do this by helping kids develop the skills they need to build strong, healthy relationships; by connecting families with social services in their community and supporting seniors remain independent in their home.
