A COMMUNITY OF CHANGEMAKERS
We’ve improved the lives of more than half a million of our neighbors. With your help, we can do so much more.
OUR IMPACT AREAS
By supporting United Way’s Impact Fund, you help deliver critical assistance and change the lives of our most vulnerable neighbors by meeting basic needs, moving toward financial stability and building success in school and life.
Connecting people at times of crisis with immediate, essential human needs such as shelter, safety and food.
Helping working families and individuals overcome short-term instability and create a path to a more financially secure future.
Addressing disparities in educational opportunities from early childhood through school years and helping young people become successful adults.
Thanks to agency partners, our staff and nearly 500 volunteers from across our five-county region of Allegheny, Armstrong, Butler, Fayette and Westmoreland —our annual Week of Caring takes place September 11-15.
More than 500 volunteer opportunities are available, and we have been working to connect teams of volunteers with nonprofit agencies that really need the support of our community. United Way’s Week of Caring projects give volunteers a variety of opportunities that provide partner agencies with extra helping hands to support their important work in our community. Projects completed during Week of Caring create a lasting impact on the lives of those being helped by our partner agencies, whose work aligns closely with our goals: to help families and individuals meet basic needs, move toward financial stability and build for success in school and life. The impact of this work lasts long after the volunteer experience has ended. Learn more about volunteer opportunities.
