2019 - 2020 Funded Agencies

Heart of Missouri United Way supports 34 agencies in Boone, Cooper and Howard counties. The programs and services of these agencies fall into one of the four Community Impact areas of Education, Health, Financial Stability or Basic Needs. Agencies provide several programs to the community, many times these programs fall under different impact areas. Because of an agency's wide-ranging scope of health and human service programming, some partner agencies may receive program service funding in more than one impact area.
