Advancing the Common Good

Creating Opportunities for a Better Life for All

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life; a quality education that leads to a stable job; enough income to support a family through retirement; and good health.  That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

Education

Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential

Income

Promoting Financial Stability and Independence

Health

Improving People’s Health

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help everyone. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable and when people are healthy.

United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. LIVING UNITED means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.
