United Way focuses on cradle-to-career education strategies that provide a firm foundation at an early age and continue to help develop our children into successful adults.
Together, improving lives and building a stronger community. United Way of Erie County is working to reduce poverty in our region by changing community conditions and creating opportunities for a better life for everyone. We mobilize people and organizations from across the community who bring the passion, resources and expertise needed to get things done.
United Way is a local organization that is accountable to our Erie community. We are governed by a local board of directors and all decisions are made at the local level.Thanks to the generous community support we receive, United Way helps improve the lives of one out of every three people in Erie County each year. Last year alone, more than 100,000 friends and neighbors in our region were touched by United Way.
