About Us

Who We Are

United Way of Medina County brings people together from our neighborhoods, government, businesses, faith groups, nonprofits, and schools to tackle important issues in Medina County.  We are part of a network of more than 1,800 local organizations across the United States and 40 countries around the world working hard to improve lives and strengthen communities for the benefit of us all.

Our goal is to create long-lasting change in Medina County communities by addressing the underlying causes of problems.  We focus our efforts on education, income, and health, and collaborate to provide the best programs addressing these three essential building blocks of a good life.  But funding these programs is not enough.  We also measure outcomes to ensure accountability and results, and stay abreast of emerging issues using high-quality data to identify and prioritize needs.  By collaborating with more partners; combining fundraising, data collection, and outcome measurement; and focusing on education, income, and health, United Way of Medina County is driving lasting community change.

Medina County is a community where people from all generations come together to invest in one another.
