United Way works to make sure families have the adequate income and assets to independently meet their families’ needs.
As many as one-third of working Americans do not earn enough money to meet their basic needs. Wages have not kept pace with the rising cost of housing, healthcare, and education and currently, 40 million Americans are working in low-paying jobs without basic health and retirement benefits. For families walking a financial tightrope, unable to save for college, a home, or retirement, United Way is here to help.
How You Can Help
To reach our goal, we need your help. Change does not happen because of the actions of one organization or one program. Change happens wen we work toward Collective Impact. Collective Impact is working together while focusing on specific goals, measurements, and outcomes to create real and lasting change. Volunteer to help.
