Slow the Cycle of Poverty

Empowering People to Lead Healthy Lives

United Way believes that strong communities are built on healthy families. Our investments improve the health of our community by helping children and adults learn healthy behaviors that will help them to lead productive lives. These investments focus primarily on behavioral and mental health. We also provide limited funding of programs focused on physical health. These strategies are based in prevention and work to boost the effectiveness of our other investments in Education and Income Stability. Action taken now will provide long-term benefits and fewer costs for our community.
