Our Impact

Storks Nest program

United Way of Story County recognizes the power of our LIVE UNITED credo. We can do more together than any of us can do apart. Collective impact is the future of human services across the globe, and it is true for us locally. It is especially important to adopt this strategic call to action during the response and recovery of the COVID-19 pandemic. The inequities in health, education, and financial stability of our community have always existed, but have never been more apparent. 

Community issues cannot be addressed in vacuums; problems facing our neighbors are interconnected and compound on one another. United Way of Story County is in a position to face these challenges head on with the team of partner agencies, strong coalitions, subject matter experts, business support, and volunteers.
