With your help, United Way is giving children and youth the support they need to get a great start in life, do well in school and reach their full potential.
Every kid deserves a chance to have a great life—to develop from a curious, happy child to a healthy and productive member of society. But in order for that to happen, kids need to be set up for success from an early age. And for those growing up in poverty, witnessing domestic violence, or facing issues like mental illness or neglect, this is often not the case.
That’s why United Way works with community partners to invest in supports for children and youth, including mentoring opportunities, safe places to learn and grow, and access to healthy food – things that help youth successfully transition to adulthood. By investing in their lives—from early childhood to young adulthood—we ensure kids have everything they need to thrive today and in the future.
