Welcome to United Helpers! In 1898, ten St. Lawrence County women met to address a pressing social need, orphaned and indigent children. They each invested one hundred dollars to form the Society of the United Helpers and created a safe haven that helped to house and keep hundreds of area children safe and nurtured.
Roll forward nearly 120 years. Continuing in the spirit of social entrepreneurship and innovation, United Helpers continued to grow and evolve, its leaders consciously addressing and adapting to emerging challenges and social needs. Today, United Helpers employs more than one thousand people and serves close to eighteen hundred customers each day.
The vision that sparked the birth of the Society of the United Helpers was ignited in 1898 and began in the hearts of the people of St. Lawrence County. In 1898, and the two decades preceding, a desperate need for increased facilities to house indigent children was identified. The problem has loomed and reached its pinnacle when a public debate arose over the fate of three area children that were considered by the community to be “running wild.”
