Community Engagement

United Way Community Engagement


We are proud to be leaders in the pathway to a stronger tomorrow, and our committment to lasting change stretches far beyond the work inside the walls of United Way. 

United Way supports speciality programs and experts in areas of Education, Health, Basic Services, Safety, Self-Sufficiency and Emerging Needs that help us realize our community goals by providing grants to programs, but also through extensive involvement in strategic planning, volunteerism, advocacy, and promotion of many community inaitives.  Schools, businesses with a vision, agencies, families, advocacy groups and the list goes on... we all work together toward one common goal: to make the world a better place to live, work and grow by strengthening systems that promote education, income and health.  Together, we accomplish so much more.
