“Victim Services Inc. is a non-profit social service agency that provides confidential free counseling, advocacy and supportive services for victims of sexual assault, domestic violence and other violent crimes in Cambria and Somerset counties. In addition, through our prevention education programs, we raise an awareness of crime in all schools from Head Start through grade twelve in the two-county area. Funding through the United Way of the Laurel Highlands is crucial as it allows us the flexibility to ensure that the services provided match the demand created by violence and victimization in our two-county area.”
— Mike Oliver, Chief Executive Officer of Victim Services

“Funding from the United Way and donors like you helps The Learning Lamp deliver high quality early learning and after school programs and support our region’s most vulnerable children and families. When you invest in children, you invest in the future of our community. Thank you for making this important work possible!”
— Dr. Leah Spangler, President & CEO of The Learning Lamp & Ignite Education Solutions

“The Salisbury Area Family Center’s mission is to support families, through home visitation and community driven programs, so they may provide the best possible opportunities for their children to grow physically, intellectually and spiritually. We serve families with children ages prenatal through Kindergarten, including children who are at risk for health and developmental delays and require additional support prenatally through the first year of Kindergarten with no income requirements ... Supportive funding through the United Way is so critical in overcoming poverty and child abuse in our county.”
