In-House Programming

In-House Programing

In an effort to make sure all Skagit children are ready for success in school and life, United Way of Skagit County now offers the following in-house direct services and programs. 

Welcome Baby

We greet each newborn and parents at Skagit Valley Hospital, giving them a bag with diapers, safe-sleep swaddle, a book – and the warm reassurance that the Welcome Baby coordinator is available to answer questions and connect parents to resources.

Diaper Bank

Diaper need is something that effects families all over the country, and our home here in Skagit County is no different. United Way collaborates with our partner organizations to provide diapers and other supplies to families in need.

Help Me Grow

United Way collaborates with the Children’s Council of Skagit County to lead this community-wide awareness campaign focused on the importance of early childhood development and the critical role of the caregiver.

Youth United Volunteer Program

Coaching, support, and resources to encourage high school students to volunteer 100+ hours within their communities.

Financial People Project

Peer-led financial education sessions are regularly held with groups of low- to moderate-income individuals and families to help achieve upward economic mobility by gaining and leveraging assets to produce wealth.

We’re Reading

The presence of books in the home has a greater influence on a child’s academic success than parent income, nationality, or education level. This program is focused on getting age-appropriate books into the hands of children in low-income homes.
