Education is a cornerstone for success in school, work and life. It benefits the entire community. High school graduates have higher earning potential, contribute more to their local economies, are more engaged in their communities, and are more likely to raise kids who also graduate, and go on to higher education or work.
United Way is about more than short-term charity for a few; we’re about lasting solutions that build opportunity for all. We look at the big picture to assess which resources are lacking or need strengthening, then we address those gaps to keep kids on track to graduation and beyond.
Good health is both a community responsibility and a community benefit. It goes beyond the individual choices we make. Its roots are in the neighborhoods we build and the environments we inhabit. The impact of poor health is felt across the entire community. Children who are absent from school because of too many sick days won't do well in school, work or life. When kids get a healthy start...when the disabled gain independence...when abuse or neglect is prevented...everyone benefits.
Helping people make choices that foster a health lifestyle and broadening access to healthcare are only part of the solution. United Way partner programs help people thrive, creating healthier communities and our collective quality of life.
