Our Focus

Creating positive change

United Way strives to break the cycle of poverty and create stronger communities. We focus on education, financial stability, and health because they are essential for living well. By addressing root causes of issues, we create innovative solutions to make real change.

Our goal is to build the House of Well-Being big enough and sturdy enough for all of us to live in. That means creating a structure that lasts and protects residents long term.



Learning begins long before the first day of school. We invest in strategies to prepare children for kindergarten, engage parents in their child’s development, and help students develop skills needed to succeed in school and life.

Financial Stability

When families can’t meet basic needs, planning for the future is nearly impossible. We focus on strategies that fill gaps and smooth transitions to help families find stable housing, increase access to food, build work skills, and more.


The conditions in which we are born, grow, live, work, and age influence our lifelong health. With proper coordination and services across systems, we can reduce barriers and promote well-being, healthy behaviors, and healthy aging across all life stages.
