Diversity & Inclusion Statement


United Way of Santa Barbara County is committed to building sustainable, inclusive and resilient communities where children and families have the tools and resources they need to be successful.

We bridge the opportunity and achievement gaps that many of our most vulnerable and diverse residents face by delivering quality, focused programs in school readiness and academic achievement, financial stability, and crisis response and recovery.

We value that every person brings a unique point of view, experience and identity, which makes us more effective in advancing our Mission and Vision.

We strive to continually build and embrace networks of diverse partners, volunteers and supporters, employees and leaders to reach out, engage, and unite the many facets of our communities.

We believe that together our United Way networks contribute diverse perspectives to all aspects of our work and result in our success.

We invite you to join us in our active efforts to serve the diverse communities of Santa Barbara County as an inclusive resource for residents.
