United Way of Benton and Franklin Counties 

United Way improves lives through Community Solutions. It's the name given to the way our work is prioritized. Community Solutions brings people together to solve problems that affect us all. We embrace the big picture in health and human services for the purpose of bringing about improved community conditions and to improve people’s lives in Benton and Franklin Counties. Community leaders identified four priority areas of focus: education, health, safety and self-sufficiency.


Boys and Girls Club 

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties operates 11 club sites in the Tri-Cities area. The Main Branch is over 22,000 sq. ft. dedicated to serving kids ranging in the ages from 3-12. The Bobbie Littrell Teen Center provides services directly targeting youth grades 6 and up. In 2004 we opened the Columbia Center Rotary Branch Music & Arts Center in downtown Kennewick. The Brighter Horizons program openned in 2007 and offers infant and toddler care to the children of students at New Horizons School, and Club Discovery serves preschoolers and kindergarteners. The Boys & Girls Clubs also operates licensed childcare at Finley Elementary School, Maya Angelou Elementary, Ruth Livingston Elementary, James McGee Elementary, and Mark Twain Elementary School in Pasco and Ki-Be Elementary School in Benon City. The Club provides over 1,200 hours of programming per week among these eleven sites and employs over 60 professional staff. Membership fees are kept low at $10 per year and average daily attendance at the eleven branches is over 700 kids. 


After School Matters

After School Matters is a program created by Fever player Lionell Singleton in 2011 and provides academic tutoring, homework assistance and physical fitness exercise to area school kids. Currently the program is offered to students at Jefferson Elementary in Richland and Eastgate Elementary and Park Middle School in Kennewick through Lionell’s foundation and volunteers from Hillspring Church. 


Junior Achievement

Junior Achievement is the world's largest non-profit economic education organization, reaching more than four million students in the United States each year. Founded in 1919, JA's mission is to educate and inspire young people to achieve financial literacy, become prepared for the work force, and embrace entrepreneurship in order to succeed in a global economy.

Through the generosity of local businesses and individuals, Junior Achievement secures funding and recruits community leaders to bring JA's engaging and time-honored lessons to life in more than 400 local classrooms in the Tri-Cities and Walla Walla region. This unique partnership between business and education, in turn, reflects JA's core purpose to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.


Tri-Cities Cancer Center

The Tri-Cities Cancer Center began as a dream for a place within our region not only to treat cancer, but also to care for those impacted by it. United in a common goal, local hospitals, individuals, civic groups, and businesses came together to make that dream a reality.

The Center, a joint venture of Lourdes Health Network, Kadlec Regional Medical Center and Trios Health opened its doors in 1994 as a freestanding non-profit cancer treatment facility.

Since then, the Tri-Cities Cancer Center has become a community resource for cancer treatment, support, education, and information. It is also a place where hope is intertwined with compassion, where dedicated professionals work alongside devoted volunteers, and services expand each year, due to the generous support of our community. It is a place where we stand together against a disease that affects us all.
