Welcome To United for Children NWI 

United Way's United for Children Northwest Indiana is a regional early childhood initiative of the United Ways of Lake, Porter and LaPorte Counties. We envision a Northwest Indiana where all children have the physical, emotional, social and cognitive skills and supports they need to be successful in school and life. United for Children aims to create optimal Donateconditions in the community that will consistently meet the developmental needs of children under age six and their families.


Ingredients for optimal development in young children:

  • Environments that promote health, safety and physical development
  • Experiences that foster social and emotional development
  • High quality opportunities for cognitive development, including early intervention
  • Stable, nurturing and supportive families
