Creating Opportunities for a Better Life for All

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life.

Our Impact Areas are:

Education – Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential through 

  • School readiness
  • Academic achievement
  • Parental/Guardian engagement
  • Productive young adults

Income – Promoting Financial Stability and Independence through

  • Family sustaining education and employment
  • Income supports
  • Saving and managing expenses
  • Affordable housing

Health – Improving People’s Health

  • Healthy beginnings
  • Healthy lifestyles
  • Safe and secure environments
  • Access to healthcare

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
