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 changes by
addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a
brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
