United Way of Missoula County is one of Missoula’s most respected, far-reaching, and effective health and human-service organizations. For almost 90 years, we have stayed true to our basic mission – to build a better community for all, especially in the areas of education, financial stability and health – and to ensure that donations entrusted to us are spent wisely and well. We focus every day on advancing that mission and supporting our most vulnerable community members. Our staff of 7 focus every day on developing and nurturing strong, results-oriented collaborations with diverse community partners.
The Missoula County Home Ignition Zone Program (HIZ Program) focuses on reducing risk and catastrophic losses in the WUI through a cost-share opportunity, which encourages homeowners to reduce structure-ignition potential within their HIZ and become better prepared for extreme wildfires.
