We are creating the United Way of our times.

We are creating the United Way for our times.

No longer simply a fundraiser, we are funders and community partners. A catalyst for change in the North Carolina counties we serve - Durham, Johnston, Orange, and Wake, with a solutions-oriented approach built on collaboration, innovation, and the power of a community united for good.

Changing Generations

Changing Generations

We are working differently by shifting to a greater focus on families and their children in low income households to dramatically change the course of their futures.

Meeting basic Needs

Meeting Basic Needs

True to United Way's historical support of basic needs, food, housing and access to healthcare, our work continues in this area to provide an "on-ramp" to stability.

Premium Help

Premium Help

For many of our friends and neighbors, healthcare is still unaffordable, even with the healthcare marketplace and federal tax assistance to help pay for premiums. PremiumHelp.org makes healthcare insurance more accessible to those that meet certain income and residency requirements.

Innovation

Innovation

Building on the success of the 2014 social innovation challenge, we are tapping into the innovative spirit of the Triangle to inspire ideas that create sustainable responses to complex social issues.
