The mission of the United Way of Northern Ozaukee is to make a positive difference for our communities.
Our vision is to mobilize resources to positively impact Northern Ozaukee County's health and human service needs through financial support and strong relationships with member agencies.
- Staff: one part-time Executive Director, who works out of her home
- 183 volunteers help with all phases of the operation.
- In 2013, over 2300 volunteer hours were donated by board members and community volunteers to help run our operations
United Way of Northern Ozaukee works collaboratively with seventeen partner agencies to solve some of the county's most pressing needs. We focus our efforts on the health and human service issues that are unique to our community; these four key areas are the building blocks for a strong community.
- Nurturing Children & Families
- Helping the Elderly Remain Independent
- Removing Barriers to the Disabled
- Helping when Misfortune Strikes
The dollars that are raised here, stay here. Over 85% of the money raised goes right back into the community, invested in community programs.
Our board: 21-25 business leaders and community volunteers who live and work in Ozaukee County. They understand that despite our high median household incomes, many individuals and families struggle to meet basic needs. When it comes to allocating donated funds, they are committed stewards.
Communities: The programs and services funded by United Way of Northern Ozaukee benefit all of Ozaukee County. However, our fundraising focus is in the northern part of Ozaukee County to comply with fundraising guidelines set forth by United Way Worldwide. Currently we raise funds in the following communities: Port Washington, Saukville, Belgium, Fredonia, and Waubeka.
