Our Initiatives


At United Way of Greater Mercer County we promote early reading readiness, and support the development of critical life skills through our education initiatives and programming to increase children’s self-esteem and self-awareness. Exposure to books, reading and enrichment opportunities nurtures success. We strive to provide tools for families to build a literacy-rich home environment. 


To address the obstacles that prevent hard working families from getting ahead financially, United Way of Greater Mercer County (UWGMC) launched the United Financial Empowerment Collaborative to help families meet their basic needs, while gaining the financial capability to plan for, and accomplish, their long-term financial goals. For families walking a financial tightrope, unable to save for college, a home, or retirement, United Way of Greater Mercer County(UWGMC) is here to help.


Good health is both a community responsibility and a community benefit. By partnering with community based organizations throughout Mercer County, United Way of Greater Mercer County UWGMC) is working to create a more resilient community.
