Plainfield Initiatives

We are dedicated to providing health and human service resources to all those we serve.  We are committed to strategically working to collaborate with leaders in the communities to improve health and well-being for all throughout Union County.

United Way of Greater Union County worked with the City of Plainfield, keystakeholders in the community and grant holders to increase health outcomes for the residents who live in Plainfield, NJ.  Healthy Plainfield is a coalition consisting of a cross-sector of faith based agencies, the Public School District, the Health Department and other key stakeholders to focus on sustainable change led by the community for the community.
