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.
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.
Welcome Back Summer promotes in-person programs that boost social and emotional wellness with educational, fun activities for children and teens throughout our region. United Way is supporting these efforts to combat summer learning loss that disproportionately affects children in low-income areas who have less access to nutrition, safe facilities and STEM educational curriculum. Looking for a summer program for your child? Visit the Allegheny Childcare Finder here.
