Tens of thousands of children in our community face poverty. That's not okay. Join the fight to change the odds so all kids can achieve their dreams. Together, with you, United Way is on a MISSION to CRUSH poverty Erie County, Pennsylvania. United Way works to reduce the number of children and families living in poverty so more are living self-sufficiently. When families are able to meet their basic needs without public or private assistance, they can focus on financial growth and pursue opportunities that previously seemed beyond their reach!
United Way goes WAY beyond short-term charity for a few. Together, we are working toward large-scale change that lasts.
United Way has evolved from its roots as a fundraising organization to a critical community impact organization mobilizing local partners - including businesses, community leaders and community residents - to break the cycle of poverty and expand opportunities for people to become self-sufficient.
