Welcome to the United Way of Ulster County

We believe that it is the right of every individual in Ulster County to have programs and services available to help them achieve their greatest potential.

A Special Message from Our Office

The United Way of Ulster County embraces diversity and stands in solidarity with those condemning racism and violence. We recognize that inequality and injustice are embedded in our society, and strive to contribute to efforts for change.

United Way’s Emergency and Homelessness Prevention Fund

Our Emergency and Homelessness Prevention Fund was created to help keep families and individuals in their homes, maintain their employment, and stay healthy. Often an unplanned car expense, an unanticipated change in employment, or even a one-time medical bill is all it takes to put someone into debt. The pandemic highlighted this more than ever, as the most vulnerable in our community were hit the hardest. With your support, we will continue to say “Yes, we can help you” when we receive requests for assistance.
