There's No Place Like Home

The United Way of Abilene is a community of donors, advocates, partners, and volunteers working together to improve the health, education, and financial stability of our community where everyone can say:

“There’s No Place Like Home.”


When you give to United Way of Abilene your gifts are combined with others to help fund 25 agencies and 27 programs that positively impact the EDUCATION, FINANCIAL STABILITY, and HEALTH of the children, families, elderly, and individuals that make up our community.  


There is no place like a warm home. As winter months continue and bring cold temperatures, we want to ensure our neighbors have access to heat for their homes. The United Way of Abilene is partnering with 211 and BootsOnTheGround to do just that!

Giving to a Warm Home is easy. Each heater costs $75 but the minimum donation is $10. Simply text “NoPlaceLikeHome” to 41444 or click the link below.


It can be overwhelming to know where to start when you need help. Our trained, certified call specialists assist every caller in assessing their needs and providing referrals to available local non-profits, organizations, and government agencies.

That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life: EDUCATION, FINANCIAL STABILITY, and HEALTH. We work with our Community Partners to address the needs of today and tomorrow while seeking ways to create positive, lasting change.
