United Way works to advance the common good in the Greater Capital Region by investing in the building blocks for a good life. These are the ability to meet BASIC NEEDS, the opportunity to receive an EDUCATION that leads to a job that pays well, a stable INCOME that provides long-term financial security, and resources to gain and maintain good HEALTH.
Our philosophy is that together, united, we accomplish more than any one person or single agency could alone. United Way understands that the challenges our community faces can seem overwhelming. But change is possible when we pool our dollars, our expertise and our effort, and focus on the issues that matter most, to help those who need it the most, in ways that achieve the greatest impact.
