Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.
That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:
- Health – Improving People’s Health
- Education – Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential
- Financial Stability – Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.
United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our region. We win by living United, by forging unlikely partnerships, by finding new solutions to old problems, by mobilizing the best resources, and by inspiring individuals to join the fight against our community’s most daunting social crises. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
Diversity and Inclusion Statement
As a champion for building strong and healthy communities, United Way Blackhawk Region celebrates diversity. We promote an inclusive environment where everyone respects and values the contributions of all people and believe all people should have an opportunity to make an impact in society. United Way seeks to engage the entire community in our work without regard to race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, age, gender, gender identity & expression, disability, sexual orientation, veteran-status, familial status or socio-economic status. United Way takes the broadest possible view of diversity, going beyond visible differences to affirm the essence of all individuals including the realities, background, experiences, skills and perspectives that make each person who they are. That commitment will be reflected in all aspects of United Way’s work – service delivery, staffing or volunteer participation. It is through the collective efforts of individuals in our communities that we create a responsible and vibrant society, one which respects, honors and thrives on the unique attributes of its members.
