United Way Network

Impact: Problems. The ones most people don’t have the stomach for. The ones nobody talks about at cocktail parties. The ones that can’t be solved. We go looking for them. We have one life. To live better, we must Live United.

Mission: United Way's mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.

Focus: We are the problem-solvers, the hand-raisers, the game-changers. We fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community.

Work: We create positive and permanent change by forging unlikely partnerships, finding new solutions to old problems and mobilizing the best resources. But we don't do it alone.
