Community Impact

Advancing the Common Good

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: financial stability, a quality education that leads to a stable job, and good health. But sometimes life throws challenges our way, and makes achieving those opportunities more difficult.

That's why United Way fights for people "upstream" to improve community-wide social conditions just as hard as we fight to help people achieve stable lives day-to-day. Our strategic vision of Community Impact helps people meet basic needs, and also prevents need from happening in the first place.

United Way investments, initiatives and volunteer events improve tens of thousands of lives each year. Read a bit more on our RESULTS page. Then decide how you will Give, Advocate or Volunteer to help us make our communities stronger, healthier and more stable.
