Producing meaningful and measurable results in the areas of youth success, financial stability and health.

To produce meaningful community change, United Way and partners explored the interconnected nature of our community’s toughest challenges: students cannot learn when their home life is stressful; families cannot support their children when working multiple low-wage jobs and still struggling to make ends meet; youth can only persist if they have access to postsecondary education and career success.

Currently, United Way strategically deploys its financial and volunteer resources in order to tackle these interconnected challenges in partnership with the following agencies:
