Did you know? Nevada and Sierra Counties have 4561 households below real cost measures and of those households, 85% of them have at least one working adult. Families are working in our community, but they are just not earning enough.

United Way of Nevada County is striving to change these statistics. When a family has to choose between a prescription or putting food on the table something has to be done. To help alleviate the cost of prescription drug cost United Way has partnered up with FamilyWize discount prescription card to help save money in our community. Through this relationship United Way has help to save close to $500,000.00 in prescription drug costs for individuals living in Nevada County.

Over the last 2 years, Donations to United Way of Nevada County helped to…

  • Serve 9200 lunches to kids during the summer...
  • Give 4400 emergency shelter nights to those in crisis...
  • Deliver meals to 360 seniors during the winter...
  • Provide medical and other services to 40 people living with AIDS...
  • Match 16 at-risk youths with Mentors...
And much, much more!

As United Way moves into their 34th year of service in Nevada County, they will continue to strive to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community. We ask you to think about how you might get involved.
