Our Work

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LIVE UNITED?

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

That's why United Way of Erie County's work is focused on the following program areas for a good life:

 

Education - Helping children and adults achieve their potential through education.

Income - Promoting financial stability and independence.

Health - Improving people's health in whichever way possible.

 

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way's goal is to create long-lasting change by addressing the underlying causes of problems. Living United means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.

GIVE. ADVOCATE. VOLUNTEER.
