What We Do

Advancing the Common Good: Creating a Hopeful Future for All

Everyone deserves opportunities to create a quality life. 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

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

Our 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.
