More Information

When floods devastated the city of Leominster in September, United Way of North Central Massachusetts joined forces with other nonprofit groups to help those displaced, raising nearly $500,000 to support 600 people with basic needs and home repairs.

Disaster relief and other unanticipated crises are just one of the specialties of the United Way, where Kory Eng has raised $18 million in his five years leading the organization. With $3.7 million in revenue in 2022, according to Internal Revenue Service records, the nonprofit targets health, education, and financial stability to improve the lives of people in 22 diverse cities and towns from Athol to Littleton. Chiefly through its Community Impact Fund, United Way of North Central reported $616,000 in assistance to more than 97,000 families between 2022 and 2023.

Eng leads a large network of volunteers living and working in the region and leverages connections with nearly 70 nonprofits and corporate business sponsors. UWNCM directed more than $2.5 million in annual grant/financial support to organizations in the region.

In addition to flood response, United Way led several high-profile projects in the last year.

UWNCM partnered with the Fitchburg Housing Authority to get funding for two family homeless shelters in Leominster and Fitchburg, providing 25 rooms, support services, food, and basic needs.

Its United to Feed program is a collaborative approach to fighting food insecurity in the region involving nonprofits, local farms, businesses, and community agencies. The program led to $45,000 worth of healthy foods being distributed to more than 1,100 households. Additionally, UWNCM provided more than $125,000 in grant support to collaborative efforts addressing the growing mental health crises among young people.
