Our Work


United Way believes that everyone should have the opportunities for a good life, and that the building blocks for that life are EDUCATION, INCOME, HEALTH, and HOUSING.

Our goals and work in the community are centered around these key areas, our four pillars of advancement. You need a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family now and into retirement, good health, and a safe, decent and affordable place to live.

EDUCATION: To increase children's readiness to learn by school entry.

INCOME: To increase the economic self-sufficiency of individuals and families.

HEALTH: To reduce the rate of risky behaviors among youth and adults and improve the health and increase the safety of individuals and families.

HOUSING: To increase the ability of individuals and families to attain affordable housing.
