United Way of the Brown County Area, Inc.

Mission Statement

To be a preferred community building organization, dedicated to identifying and responding to the health and human service needs of the Brown County area.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments We only know how many children are receiving books but hope to add a measurement component to kindergarten screening. We know that 471 children participated in an after-school activity because their family received assistance to pay for fees/equipment. We know that 73 households received assistance with yard work and household chores this fall that enabled them to continue living in their homes. We know that 520 children received grade-appropriate school supplies and backpacks. We know that our 32 agencies provided documentation on how their allocation was used in serving the residents of Brown County.
Current Goals We will continue all the programs listed above. We are hoping to expand our free tax preparation program by adding site in Springfield which would be in addition to our New Ulm site. This would require increasing the number of volunteer preparers and continue to market the services to a larger number of people.
Community or Constituency Served Serving all residents, from birth to senior citizens, of the Brown County area in Minnesota.
Geographic Area Served We serve Brown County in Minnesota.
