A Message from Our Executive Director & Board President

The United Way of Northern Ozaukee has been around for a very long time. We started off in the 1950s as a Community Chest. Years later we affiliated with United Way. Through the years we have adapted to the changing needs in the community while impacting the lives of tens of thousands of people along the way. We have helped bring together community resources in times of need and fostered collaboration with nonprofit organizations, businesses, community groups, individuals and government agencies to make our community stronger.

We are governed by an entirely volunteer board of directors that represents all areas of the county, a range of local businesses and schools. These are community leaders who are focused on the needs of Ozaukee County. We have one paid staff member who miraculously wrangles all of these complex activities into coherent and effective action.

Our commitment to this community guides each decision we make and helps us to prepare for whatever comes next. We look to the future with a broad and bold vision that will help ensure that Ozaukee County remains a healthy, growing and economically vibrant community.

We have shown that we can LIVE UNITED for a healthy, growing and vibrant community! 

Please help us move forward together stronger, healthier and UNITED.

Craig Modahl, Board President

Barbara Bates-Nelson, Executive Director
