Our Work

The United Way of Butte and Anaconda (UWBA) is working to build a stronger community, creating opportunities for everyone by focusing on three basic building blocks of life - Education, Income and Health.  To ensure that scarce financial and human resources are used effectively, UWBA encourages collaboration among public and private human service providers.  

Programs intended to enhance the education of children, youth and adults or the ability to seek education.

Programs which promote financial stability and independence.  Programs which provide childcare or assistance which enable parents to earn an income.  These programs may include temporary housing, clothes and food if income has been lost or while a person is recovering from a life-altering event.

Programs which concentrate on improving people's physical and mental health.

 

Duplication of effort among service providers is a community concern that UWBA shares.  UWBA volunteers will be proactive in their efforts to monitor duplication of effort and encourage providers to find ways to prevent unnecessary duplication.
