Why LIVE UNITED? Because together we’re Advancing the COMMON GOOD through
EDUCATION, INCOME AND HEALTH
EDUCATION -HELPING CHILDREN AND YOUTH ACHIEVE THEIR POTENTIAL THROUGH EDUCATION
Because hungry children are not prepared to learn, United Way supports the Food for Kids Backpack program.
Because teens who are involved and who have a support network are more likely to succeed in school,
INCOME -HELPING FAMILIES BECOME FINANCIALLY STABLE AND INDEPENDENT
Because people in need can miss out on services that could help them, United Way offers 2-1-1 an easy to remember phone number to connect people to the help they need.
Because some families have no heat in the winter, United Way's winter warmth program assists those referred to have a warmer winter.
HEALTH -IMPROVING PEOPLE’S HEALTH
Because not having enough diapers can create tension and emotional distress for parents and babies, United Way does an annual diaper drive to lend a hand to families in an emergency shortage of this item.
