United Way of Western Connecticut
The United Way of Western Connecticut brings together community leaders, nonprofit organizations, volunteers and businesses to focus on the most pressing needs in our community and provides the resources - human, technical and financial - to get to the heart of problems. United Way is uniquely positioned because its partnerships, community knowledge, corporate relationships and money are all resources that can be brought to bear on our community's needs. We are focused on making lasting changes in people lives and the community.
United Way of Western Connecticut focuses on making a difference in three areas:
Income: Increasing independence and dignity for our most vulnerable neighbors Education: Helping kids succeed in school and life while helping families thrive Health: Promoting health and safety for all of our community members
Depending on the situation - bringing the community together around an issue, facilitating action among partners, issue advocacy, measuring results, lending our expertise, leveraging our relationships, investing funds that will create a breakthrough - we will do whatever it takes to get the results our community needs.
