Lake Area United Way

Lake Area United Way recently honed its mission to assist struggling working families in the Lake County, Indiana and Lansing, Illinois community. LAUW found that locally, one in four working families are living just above poverty, therefore not eligible for government assistance, but not earning enough income to afford the basic necessities of a family household.

The organization will collaborate with other community organizations to develop strategies that will offer long-term, systemic solutions to help these families and ultimately the entire community. In 2015, 42,000 households maintained financial stability by receiving food and grocery products through the United Way’s partnerships with local food pantries and soup kitchens. Over 8,000 children and youth attended safe, high-quality after-school programs and are on the path to stay in school and earn high school diplomas.

Join us as we support The Lake Area United Way on their mission to further extend their efforts to ensuring that families are able to reach their goals and receive the support that they need.
