United Way of Central Iowa leads the fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every central Iowan. It's what we have done for 100 years. And tens of thousands have joined the fight.

These 100 stories—to celebrate our 100 years—are just a sampling of what happens when we Unite as a community. These are people we have served and people who serve. Their lives have been transformed by the effort.

This is our story. This is your impact. This is how we LIVE UNITED.
