EBENSBURG — The United Way of the Laurel Highlands will open a satellite office in Ebensburg today.

It is the second satellite office the organization has opened since fall, when it opened one in Johnstown.

United Way President Bill McKinney said the move was necessary to expands the agency’s presence in the county.

“As our community impact work expands throughout our territory, it has become very important to have a presence in the northern part of Cambria County,” McKinney said in a statement.   

The organization will operate from a building owned by Wessel & Co. at 120 W. High St. The office will be staffed by Sue Stevens, a Mundys Corner resident with 23 years’ experience with the organization.  

A Bishop Carroll High School graduate, Stevens said she welcomes the opportunity.

“Having raised my children in Ebensburg, I am excited about renewing connections with friends and acquaintances that I have known over the years,” Stevens said in a statement.

“I want to be able to connect the dots for the residents in this portion of Cambria County about the great programming and services that are available through the United Way-funded programs,” she said.

United Way of the Laurel Highlands, which serves Cambria and Somerset counties, recently announced more than $860,000 in grants and funding to programs through 26 partner agencies for the 2013-14 funding cycle.
