Our Mission is to improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good. Promote healthy lives, and increase by one-third the number of youth and adults who are healthy and avoid risky behaviors. These goals are ambitious, but with your help, and by utilizing our core strengths — a national network, committed partners and public engagement capacity — we can achieve them.

Our United Way of Southbridge, Sturbridge and Charlton is a vital link between local non-profit organizations and the residents of these wonderful towns. Working together, we raise funds, increase volunteerism and promote awareness – to ensure better lives for those less fortunate in our community. Most importantly, 99.5% of the money that is raised here stays here – directly benefiting our neighbors in Southbridge, Sturbridge and Charlton. Just .5% is contributed to the United Way Worldwide. In turn, UWSSC is provided training, mentoring, and more through United Way Worldwide.
