The United Way of Vermillion was founded in 1956 by local citizens who wanted to work together to build a better community. As we look towards the future, we envision a community that is stronger, more coordinated in its network of resources, and ultimately more self-sufficient.
To be a leader in the Vermillion area through coordination and support of accessible services that make best use of our community’s assets and resources, and impact our identified, targeted areas of need. We will ensure basic needs (food, shelter, transportation, and clothing) are met, laying the foundation for:
• empowered individuals and families working towards self-sufficiency,
• enhanced childhood experiences for all children in the community,
• improved livelihood, and
• lasting, positive community change.
