Partner Agencies of the Clinton County United Way
First and foremost, the United Way is about partnership. Ultimately, no matter the mission of any agency or person in our community that helps another, we are all united in fighting for the common good. What is so apparent and also so special about our community, is that although unfortunately many need help, just as many have stood up to help. Below is a list of our current partners who are fighting the good fight. We truly believe that a community that works together helps all people. If you are interested in becoming a partner, please check out our partner portal on this website.
