United Way advances the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all. Our focus is on education, income and health, because these are the building blocks for a good quality of life – a quality education that leads to a stable job, income that supports a family, and good health. United Way works each and every day to strengthen these building blocks for everyone throughout the Greater Cincinnati region.
We recruit the people and organizations from all across the community who bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to get things done.
We invite people to be a part of the change -- to give, advocate and volunteer.
We’re working in partnership with others to achieve these goals and create lasting change.
