What We Do

United Way fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community. We are more than fund-raisers. We are hand-raisers. We raise our hands not only to lead the fight, but to reach out to people who need help. And hope.

Through our volunteer committees and projects, through workplace campaigns, and through agency coalitions and partnerships, our community comes together to discover the common good in all of us.  That’s the United Way.

 


Education

Education is a cornerstone for success in school, work and life.

United Way makes sure children and youth can start school ready to succeed, become proficient readers at a young age, stay on track in middle school, earn their high school diploma and pursue higher education.

Thanks to the care provided at United Way-supported early education programs, children can get the right start in life, and their families are able to work hard and maintain financial stability.


Health & Welfare

Good health is both a community responsibility and a community benefit: The foundation for a healthy life is in the neighborhoods we build and environments we inhabit. When people have access to parks, bike paths, safe playgrounds, healthy foods, and good medical care, they are more likely to succeed in school, work and life.

United Way and its partners provide a host of mental and physical health services, creating a network of care that keeps our community strong.


Financial Stability

When people are able to find decent jobs, provide for their families and save for the future, they and their children are more likely to enjoy healthy lives and succeed in school. In turn, stable individuals and families lead to a more competitive workforce and a stronger community.

United Way’s volunteer professionals from all sectors of society, connect people to the resources they need to get on more solid financial ground. From financial wellness classes to career training and job-search assistance, credit counseling and free tax preparation assistance, we’re helping people to earn more and save more.The result is thriving communities where everyone has more opportunity to succeed.
