Live United

Underneath everything we are,
underneath everything we do,
we are all people. 
Connected, Interdependent, United. 
And when we reach out a hand to one,
we influence the condition of all. 
That's what it means to




Advancing the Common Good: Creating Opportunities for a Better Life for All

Stock_Boy-Serious-behind-Fence-Large.gifEveryone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

That's why United Way's work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

  • Education  Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential
  • Income  Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
  • Health  Improving People's Health

Advancing the common good is less about hStock_Senior_Sick.jpgelping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way's goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.
