Community impact

Learn how United Way’s new approach helps people affected by issues near to your heart.

Times have changed dramatically and today’s problems are more widespread, more complicated and more difficult to treat. What remains the same is this important question: How do we effectively identify current community needs and gather the necessary resources to help our neighbors build a better life?

United Way is embarking on a bold journey: one that links solid, research-based community strategies to the resources needed to implement them. But we’re all in this together – change can only happen when the entire community joins together to confront an issue.
