History of United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore
United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore (UWLES), now in its 79th year of local service, harnesses the power of our community to advance health, education, and financial stability for all neighbors in Dorchester, Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester counties. UWLES helps empower Lower Shore residents to achieve better health by addressing barriers to care, educational success by reducing the achievement gap between low- and middle-income students, and financial stability by advancing the economic security of families and individuals. United Way provides direct services, collaborates with local stakeholders, and supports dozens of local nonprofits to strengthen the entire community, impacting 1 in every 3 individuals on the Lower Shore annually.
