Collaborating

We are working with nonprofit and community partners as a network, helping to orchestrate coordinated action plans toward shared goals.

Investing in solutions and innovative approaches

We continue to focus on outcomes to address issues facing our community by supporting and investing in proven solutions as well as promising new approaches developed through collaboration and innovation.

Focusing our approach

We will meet today’s basic needs (food, housing, safety, and access to healthcare) and work to build sustainable solutions that will mean brighter futures for low-income families, children, and our community.

Our focus on basic needs and funding long-term solutions to specific issues to help families and children together represents the new direction of our United Way.
