How United Way Supports Basic Needs

United Way empowers people to get on stable financial ground with proven methods like job training, life-skills classes and more. The result is thriving communities where everyone has more opportunity to succeed.

When people are able to find decent jobs, provide for their families and save for the future, they and their children are more likely to enjoy healthy lives and succeed in school. Everyone benefits, because financially stable individuals and families lead to a more competitive workforce and a stronger community.

Thanks to your gift to United Way last year 44,197 individuals' basic needs were met.
