Our Work

In addition to financial investment, today’s United Way also is placing increasing emphasis on addressing the underlying causes of social challenges. We work to influence sustainable, measurable changes. We know change will not happen overnight, and that we cannot achieve our goals alone. We must be strategic and work closely with our community partners to:

  • Engage and mobilize community dollars, influence, time, knowledge and action
  • Identify and address underlying causes;
  • Strengthen the network of services and capacity of human-service agencies in the community; and
  • Educate, raise awareness and influence public perceptions, systems and policy.
