United Way advances the common good by focusing on education, income, and health - the building blocks to a good life. We strive to create long-lasting changes that prevent problems from happening in the first place and invite you to be part of the change. Together, united, we can inspire change and build thriving communities.

Our work is to identify, launch and participate in community problem-solving initiatives. We help more than one person, one agency, or one issue by magnifying the investment of many in the community to create positive, measurable change. We recruit and train dedicated volunteers who are passionate and knowledgeable of community needs to make the important decisions on how to best invest donor funds. Being the “community safety net” will always be a major role of United Way. We will continue to provide for those in need, whether it is food, shelter, transportation, or physical or mental health-related issues. No one knows when an unexpected situation might cause individuals or families to need help.
In 2015, we adopted the Bold Goal to help 10,000 more working families meet their basic needs by 2025, after holding community conversations to identify key needs.
