Upper Valley

Granite United Way’s Upper Valley Region is committed to strengthening our communities.

Our Upper Valley region covers communities in both New Hampshire and Vermont. In this region, our Community Impact Committee volunteers have targeted their investments in this region to address the needs of the low-income wage earner. They also continue to invest in initiatives and programs that focus on Education, Income, and Health. 

Work United

Too often, barriers such as childcare, reliable transportation and acute need for emergency financial assistance get in the way of continuous employment and derail good employees. Work United is dedicated to improving workplace productivity, retention, advancement, and financial stability for employees.
