United Way Plans Future In New Home

WARREN, Ohio – The United Way of Trumbull County celebrated its move to new offices at 295 Harmon Ave. in Warren with a ribbon cutting Sept. 27. Its previous building was not ideal for the agency, chapter president Christine Cope said.

Now that United Way of Trumbull County has relocated, Cope said it has more time to help its partner agencies and support those in the community.

“It took the month of July to move,” Cope said. “We were really focused on doing that so we could have a nice fresh start right here in this building.”

Although the building is smaller, Cope said she believes it is the perfect fit.

Cope took over as president in July and spent her first months overseeing the move. The new location is the first step in her plan to take the organization to new heights for its 100th anniversary.
