Making Life Better For Everyone

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job and enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

Building Blocks

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


Health – Encouraging healthy living and improving wellbeing
Education – Helping children, youth, and adults achieve their potential
Financial Stability – Promoting income stability and self-sufficiency

“Making Life Better for Everyone” is less about helping 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, families are financially stable, and people are healthy.

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