Service & Organizations

Our community prides itself on a rich tradition of service to others. The Lebanon area’s largest umbrella agency for social service organizations is the Upper Valley United Way (UVUW). For more than 35 years, UVUW has worked to advance the common good and improve the quality of life for community residents by focusing on education, income, and health. The following are just a few of the organizations supported by UVUW:

Outside of UVUW’s family of supported organizations, there are approximately 90 additional nonprofits in the region funded through private donations. Covering the spectrum from arts councils and youth groups to health initiatives and economic development agencies, they include such organizations as Upper Valley Hostel, the Upper Valley Housing Coalition, Vital Communities, the Upper Valley Humane Society, and the Upper Valley Land Trust.

Working side-by-side with these nonprofits are a variety of volunteer service clubs throughout the Upper Valley, such as Lebanon’s two Rotary clubs, which work to raise money for worthy community causes throughout the year.

Volunteer opportunities abound in the Lebanon area, whether you enjoy teaching, working outdoors, helping seniors, or sharing your professional skills. Click here for a list of available volunteer jobs in the region.
