Funding Priorities

Poverty is a far-reaching, complex issue, and a lasting one. Once in the cycle of poverty, it is extremely difficult to overcome and can affect future generations. United Way is committed to ensuring access to immediate support for families and individuals.

The focus of healthy people, strong communities is to engage and mobilize residents to take collective action to improve access to, and increase the availability of resources needed to revitalize and strengthen neighborhoods.

Children and youth are the future of our communities. To become successful, independent adults, children and youth need a good start in life, access to early literacy and development programs, positive school experiences during the middle years and to graduate from high school.
