What We Do

We are all connected in our community. When children succeed, when families are stable, when individuals stay healthy, our community is stronger. That’s why United Way focuses on Health, Education and Financial Stability.  These three building blocks are the key areas of a good life for all. Our goal is to provide the leadership and resources it takes to make lasting change so that people can improve their lives, advancing the common good.
