United Way of Greater Fort Dodge

Fort Dodge United Way of Greater Fort Dodge is a 501(C)3 public charity dedicated to supporting and uplifting families and youth. United Way of Greater Fort Dodge supports numerous organizations and agencies that help struggling families become self-sufficient and stable for the long-term. Families need a supportive community to provide social ties, enhance health, teach values and develop assets in children. When families are stable and thriving, they provide the best environment for children to grow, develop and reach their full potential academically, socially and developmentally.

United Way of Greater Fort Dodge is also dedicated to ensuring the best possible future for our youth by promoting positive choices and behaviors and helping youth access available services and resources so they have a greater opportunity to achieve their full potential and pursue their goals and dreams. By providing leadership and supporting a coalition of organizations, agencies, services and programs, United Way is building a synergistic network that effectively connects youth to opportunities that will provide them with the chance to grow and develop in a positive and healthy way; and in doing so, help them create an optimistic future filled with hope.
