United Way of Erie County is a local social impact organization on a mission to crush poverty in our community. We envision a collaborative community where all students succeed and all families thrive. That's LIVING UNITED.
Community Schools become hubs, rich with resources for students and their families.
Ensure that more children in low-income families succeed in school and graduate prepared for college, a career, and active citizenship.
Helping provide an easy-to-remember telephone number and web resource for finding health and human services.
Diversity is valuing the differences of ideas, experiences, and individuals without regard to race, religion, color, gender identity, nationality, sexual orientation, physical challenge, or age.
Erie County is changing. It is becoming more ethnically and culturally diverse; and this diversity brings with it many advantages as well as many challenges. To assure that future generations are able to enjoy the richness of this diversity, we must cultivate opportunities, and encourage more participation throughout all facets of our work and interactions in the community.
Our goal is to have our board of directors, management, staff, and volunteers representative of the community and genuinely demonstrate the principles of diversity which enrich our community.
