Hometown Helping Hands

Volunteers Needed!

The United Way of Posey County Is Bringing A New Program To Our Community Called Hometown Helping Hands

This program will support projects for our community’s elderly, disabled, and individuals with financial needs to fix unskilled labor projects within their homes.

Do you love to mow, paint, landscape, etc. and prefer to work alone? You can do that and help someone in the community at the same time! Or volunteer alongside friends, family, or colleagues and make it a special experience. Have fun and make a positive difference in our community by serving together.

Call Keely Winiger at 812-838-3637 or email

Sign up today for our 5k Race/Walk and Kids’ Dash! November 4, 2023!!!!!

Come out and have some fun and help us race funds for our community at the same time.

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
