Creating Opportunites for a Better Life for All

Our mission at United Way of Mifflin-Juniata is to improve people’s lives by mobilizing the caring power of the community. It is our belief that every person should have the opportunity to gain a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.
