United Way’s mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.
We all have a stake in each other's success. We all benefit when a child succeeds in school, when someone finds a job that sustains a family, or when more people get quality, affordable health care.
The solutions we create for communities around the world go beyond short-term charity for a few. When United Way’s support for Community Schools helps Estafania flourish in elementary school, it does more that strengthen her foundation for success in school, work and life. Community Schools are a proven strategy that removes barriers to learning, and instills students with confidence. We believe that much of what influences a young person’s education happens outside the classroom. That's why we support parent education, adult job training, food pantries, after-school homework clubs and more as part of Community Schools. Equipping Estafania and her family -- and those of her peers -- with tools for success translates into a safer, healthier, and more equitable community for everyone.
With your support, we're fighting for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community. United, we succeed.
We are the problem-solvers, the hand-raisers, the game-changers. We fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community.
We create positive and permanent change by forging unlikely partnerships, finding new solutions to old problems and mobilizing the best resources. But we don't do it alone.
