OUR PARTNERS

United Way works with companies, governments, nonprofits and other organizations to address complex challenges on a worldwide scale. Our partners contribute more than money. Their ideas, volunteer power, in-kind support and more are helping build stronger communities.

2015 - 2016 Corporate Partners

Corporate partners engage in workplace campaigns that unite employees in all offices or branches of a company, and gives them an opportunity to donate, volunteer and speak out for causes that matter to them. Corporate partners play a vital role in raising funds for our anchor partners and initiatives, and also serve as our resource for volunteers to get involved in annual drives such as our Season of Caring food drives and the Stuff the Bus book bag and school supplies drives.

Nurse Family Partnership

UWGUC coordinates the Nurse-Family Partnership program in Union County. NFP is an evidence-based, community health home visitation program that helps transform the lives of vulnerable mothers pregnant with their first child. This program allows nurses to deliver the support first-time moms need to have a healthy pregnancy, become knowledgeable and responsible parents, and provide their babies with the best possible start in life. The relationship between mother and nurse provides the foundation for strong families and lives are forever changed - for the better.

Over 55 organizations have joined our Community Resource Network, each filling a vital role connecting individuals and families of Union County, North Plainfield and South Plainfield to the support they need.  Community Resource Network members work to support families and individuals by building a continuum of care – providing critical services ranging from pre-natal health classes to strengthening the life skills of the families in our community.  The Network helps the people in our community build a stronger support system, assists them through crises and works with them to create long-term stability and self-sufficiency for their families.
