Glens Falls, NY – February 26, 2024 – Tri-County United Way is pleased to announce the selection of non-profit partner agencies for its 2023-2024 funding cycle.

In addition, Tri-County United Way is proud to welcome four new partner agencies to its network: North Country Ministry, Glens Falls Association for the Blind, Comfort Food Community, and ASCEND Mental Wellness.

“We are committed to identifying and supporting our partner agencies as our community’s needs evolve,” said Kristin Chlopecki, Executive Director Tri-County United Way. “With the expansion of our Community Investment Fund, we are excited to increase our impact and support more programs focused on seniors, youth, and mental health.”

Tri-County United Way’s recently added partner agencies provide essential services and support to underserved communities, aligning with the Tri-County United Way’s mission to improve lives and foster positive change.

North Country Ministry provides a Hand of Hope to those facing life’s challenges in our rural and underserved 650-square-mile service area. Comfort Food Community strives to end rural hunger by providing nourishing food to those in need and has made significant impacts, distributing over 1/2 million pounds of food and serving over 20,400 individuals in 2022. The Glens Falls Association for the Blind, Inc., provides services to blind and visually challenged persons of all ages in Warren, Washington, Hamilton, Northern Saratoga, Eastern Fulton, and Montgomery Counties. Ascend Mental Wellness encourages and assists individuals in discovering pathways to their optimal mental health and wellness, while supporting hope and awareness of well-being in our community.

The selection of these funded partner agencies follows a thorough application process, including review by the Community Investment Committee, comprised of local volunteers with expertise in mental health care, senior care, childcare, education, and program outcomes. This committee plays a crucial role in allocating donor funds entrusted to Tri-County United Way.

Tri-County United Way serves Warren, Washington, and northern Saratoga Counties, prioritizing support for ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) families and individuals. In 2023, marking their centenary, the organization achieved significant milestones, including increased support to partner agencies, distribution of backpacks to ALICE families, and savings on income tax preparation fees for residents, among others.
