We're all in this together. For the Pocono Mountains.

On April 1st, 2019, United Way of Monroe County and Pocono Alliance formally merged to become the Pocono Mountains United Way, in an effort to better assist individuals and families in need in Monroe County through increased collaboration, efficiency and impact. Our new combined staff and board of directors are committed to improving the lives of individuals, working families and children. Each of us is devoted to empowering our community and inspiring collaboration to help build a stronger community for the future. We seek to engage the entire community in our work without regard to race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, age, gender, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation, veteran-status, familial status, or socio-economic status. That commitment is reflected in all aspects of our work – service delivery, staffing or volunteer participation.
