Services are tentatively available November 9, 2015, through March 31, 2016. There is no income eligibility, but co-payment based on income does apply. Residents ages 70+ are eligible for Energy Bank assistance regardless of receipt of LIHEAP benefits. Financial health, energy conservation, and weatherization information is provided.

2015 Campaign Raised $487,662

United Way of Mifflin-Juniata raised $487,662 to meet local needs around education, health and income.  The state of the economy was a concern this year, but donors understand that United Way funding helps many people in the community.  “From working closely with our program partners, we know needs have increased dramatically during challenging times. We shared this message with our community throughout the campaign, and the people of the Mifflin and Juniata counties responded with tremendous support," said Marie Mulvihill, Executive Director.   

While this amount of support reflects positively on the generosity of the community, it is too little to fully meet the needs of the agencies providing after school programs, youth mentoring, programs and scholarships for health related activities and support for basic needs like heat and shelter.    

With an overall reduction of 23% in available funds, the United Way will be funding only those agencies that were funded during the 2014-2015 fiscal year.  Community Investment volunteers will review applications to determine how to invest the limited funds, taking into account the impact that programs have on the most vulnerable populations.  Program changes may be seen across the board as partner agencies make adjustments.    

The Community Investment Committee is recruiting volunteers.  If you are interested in being part of this process and can commit volunteer hours in April and May, please contact the United Way office: 717-248-9636 or
