United Way of Northern Utah

The United Way is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the common good by encouraging people to give, advocate and volunteer to bring about positive change in our community. The United Way is a philosophy that underneath what we look like, where we live or what we do, we're all people. We're all interconnected, and inter-dependent. When one of us succeeds, we all succeed. Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. That's why United Way's work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

Education -- Helping children and youth achieve their potential
Income -- Promoting financial stability and independence
Health -- Improving people's health

The United Way of Northern Utah first came into effect in 1961 as part of a County vote to unify agencies providing services to Davis County with a United Fund. As the years have continued the idea of agencies working together to improve services to Northern Utah has remained. 

The organizations that partner with the United Way today are:

• American Red Cross
• Box Edler Community Pantry
• Boys & Girls Clubs
• Catholic Community Services
• House of Hope / Serenity House
• Lantern House (St.Anne’s Center)
• Local School Districts
• New Hope Crisis Center • Oneida Crisis Center
• Prevent Child Abuse Utah
• The Salvation Army
• Tri-County Independent Living Center
• Share, Inc.
• Utah AIDS Foundation
• YMCA
• Your Community Connection (YCC)

How to Get Involved with the United Way of Northern Utah

Become a Volunteer

Being a volunteer is far more than attending a group activity once every few months. Volunteers can participate in a variety of programs that range in focus, age group, and meeting times. There is no experience needed and you will be able to make a difference in the life of a young person. After you register with a program, all you need to bring is you! The United Way is a connector organization, which means we connect nonprofit agencies with people willing to fill their positions as volunteers. These opportunities can be as little as one day of service or as much as a regular, ongoing service position. The time commitment is up to the volunteer and can be matched with each agency for a perfect fit. Contact Bev Campbell - bcampbell@uwnu.org - 801 - 399 - 5584 X112.

Be a Tutor

We are seeking volunteers to be readers and/or tutors in Ogden and Weber elementaryschools. This is a year-long commitment to one or two students to help them reach grade level and see success. This position requires a background check and brief training in the reading program used at all area schools. We also accept tutors for our three junior high schools to assist students who have fallen behind in with their school work. Contact Sabra Kelley at skelly@uwnu.org.
