We believe in creating a community where everyone has an opportunity to thrive and we’re committed to helping children and families in our region move out of poverty. 

We know these goals cannot be accomplished with only private funds. Government support is critical. That’s why United Way works directly with elected and appointed officials on the federal, state and local levels to address long-term and systemic issues that impact health, education and financial stability. 

We believe you can help! When we Live United, we have the power to do good together.   Learn how you can Take Action.
