Focus on Health

Good health is an essential ingredient for individual success and a thriving community. Healthy kids are more likely to succeed in school. The whole community will flourish when all of our residents have access to quality health care and health education services. We are committed to more than short-term charity for a few; we are committed to lasting solutions that build opportunity for all.

We focus on the challenges and aspirations of each community we serve, but we are also part of a worldwide community working together to affect change on a large scale. United Way is engaged in nearly 1,800 communities across more than 40 countries and territories, bringing millions of people together to create long-term solutions that build opportunity for all.

  • Providing access to primary health care for physical,
    emotional, mental health and substance abuse issues
  • Helping children to avoid risky behavior
