Advancing the Common GoodCreating opportunities for a better life for all. “We all win when a child succeeds in school, when a neighborhood turns around, when families have good health and workers have solid jobs.”
Live United Underneath everything we are, underneath everything we do, we are all people. Connected, interdependent, united. And when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. That’s what it means to live united.
United Way 2-1-1 A three-digit number phone number connecting people with local health and human services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This year, calls have gone up 23%. More than 60% of those calls have been seeking emergency assistance.
