Together, improving lives and building a stronger community.
At United Way of Erie County, we are focused on reducing poverty.
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 reduce poverty and expand opportunities for people to become self-sufficient.
