About Us

Vision Statement:
The vision of the United Way Regional Volunteer Center is to build capacity throughout Northwest Indiana by promoting volunteerism.

In 2003 the United Way of Porter County added the Volunteer Center as an initiative to increase the capacity of the non profit community in Porter County by promoting volunteerism. In April, 2003 the Volunteer Center launched Volunteer Solutions, a web based software that allows non profit organizations to post their volunteer opportunities and the public to connect with an agency of interest easily, quickly, and efficiently.

In 2007 services were expanded to Lake, LaPorte and Starke counties and the name was changed to the United Way Regional Volunteer Center. To serve the non profit community in the other counties, a Volunteer Coordinator is housed at the Lake Area United Way to serve the needs of Lake County, and a Volunteer Coordinator is also housed at the United Way of Porter County to serve Porter and Starke counties. LaPorte County joined the Regional Volunteer Center in 2012, with an AmeriCorps member to serve as the Volunteer Coordinator.
