Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family and good health. That is why United Way’s work is focused the building blocks for a good life. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable and when people are healthy. Through the vital programs of our funded agencies, you can help children and youth achieve their potential, promote financial stability and independence and improve people’s health.

United Way’s goal is to create long lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems.

Living United means being part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.

Change cannot happen without you.
