Since 2013, United Way of Midland volunteers have granted over $352,492 to help strengthen our community through projects such as refurbishing senior housing with Midland Parker Place, replacing soiled mattresses at Safe Place of the Permian Basin, and remodeling a room with Basin Dream Center allowing them to double the number of beds available for girls aging out of foster care. The power of your purse can help change the story of many Midlanders through United Way! Click here to learn more about our 2019 Innovative Grant recipients.
