United Way of Central Carolinas fights for the education, health, and financial stability of every person in our community. CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT OF OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL Focusing on education, health, financial stability, and basic needs, we work to address our community’s economic mobility challenges. Our two-generation approach supports the entire family by intentionally focusing on the needs of both parent and child. To create an environment of opportunity for all, we focus on building stronger neighborhoods, improving the systems that serve children and families, and providing basic needs support across our region. This targeted approach is fueled by broad civic engagement that brings together the people, resources and services necessary to improve economic mobility.
We support our five-county region through a network of partners that work collaboratively to provide comprehensive and coordinated services to achieve the best possible results.
We utilize a community-led model to create sustained neighborhood change by working with key partners and community residents to drive transformation and revitalization efforts.
We support new and grassroots organizations through grants and capacity-building activities that strengthen organizational and financial stability, program quality, and growth.
Our community is made up of caring people who want to ensure an environment of opportunity for all. At United Way, we offer many ways – both big and small – for everyone to come together to take control of our future.
