Every day people in our community face personal and social crises. Homelessness. Hunger. Addiction. Lack of or low-quality education. Quality health care that is out of reach.
We – the team at United Way, our partners and supporters like you – surround tough problems like these and we fight. We fight to make the lives of every person in our community better by improving their health, education and financial stability.
Why We Fight
We fight because even though our community has a lot to celebrate, there are still a lot of problems that need to be solved. These are often problems that aren’t talked about. They’re complex problems without easy answers. They’re problems that last weeks, years and even generations.
How We Fight
When we’re UNITED we can solve these social crises. We can bring together the organizations with the best resources and the people in need. We can find new solutions to old problems. And we can find and mobilize people in our community who are ready to take on our community’s most daunting crises.
What We Fight For
What does it mean to join the fight? It means you:
Fight for the well-being of people in our community.
We make it easier for individuals to access substance abuse programs, receive quality health care and access nutritious foods, we’re fighting to help everyone get—and stay—healthy.
Fight for more kids and teenagers to have a chance to succeed.
From cradle to career, we ensure every child gets a strong start in life, teenagers have the tools to learn and grow, and young adults can thrive in the job market.
Fight for a path to financial stability for families and individuals.
We support access to services, job training, credit counseling and money management programs that help make financial stability easier.
But change doesn’t happen alone. Help improve the lives of people in our community by supporting United Way.
