United Way believes everyone deserves opportunities for a good life: a quality education that leads to sustaining job opportunities, enough income to support a family, and a good, healthy lifestyle that increases life expectancy.
Throughout the state, California’s United Ways are focused on the building blocks for a good life:
- Health: Improve Health for all Californians
- Education: Help Children and Youth Achieve their Potential
- Income: Promoting Financial Sustainability and Independence
- 2-1-1: Linking Californians to Resources
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 a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
