NPUW Announced 2016-19 Funded Programs

North Penn United Way (NPUW) is embarking on the next Program Investment cycle, July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2019. Our organization remains committed to improving lives and community conditions in the North Penn and Indian Valley communities.

Our targeted population is low-income/English Language Learner children, low-income older adults age 60 and older, and residents facing crisis.

We rely on the generosity of donors, volunteers and corporate partners to help us accomplish our goals and raise awareness of the pressing needs in our community. In addition, our partners (nonprofit, civic, education, health and business) are critical to the success of our work.

NPUW is committed to three Community Goals:
ALL STUDENTS IN NORTH PENN AND INDIAN VALLEY SUCCEED IN SCHOOL
ALL OLDER ADULTS IN NORTH PENN AND INDIAN VALLEY LIVE HEALTHY, VIBRANT LIVES
ALL NORTH PENN AND INDIAN VALLEY RESIDENTS HAVE A STRONG SAFETY NET
