Advancing the Common Good: Creating Opportunities for a Better Life for All
Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.
Thatâ€™s why United Wayâ€™s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:
- Education â€“ Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential
- Income â€“ Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
- Health â€“ Improving Peopleâ€™s Health
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 Wayâ€™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.
