We envision a world where all individuals and families achieve their human potential through Education, Income Stability, Healthy Lives and Safety.

Our Work for United Way

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, good health, and a saftey net.

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

  • Education – Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential
  • Income – Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
  • Health – Improving People’s Health
  • Safety – Ensuring the Safety of Our Community

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, and when we all are safe from disaster.
