United Way of the Wine Country has been dedicated to improving lives locally for 50 years. Everyone deserves a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, income that can support a family through retirement, and good health. To create lasting change, United Way focuses on solving the underlying causes of common problems related to education, income and health. We are committed to achieving lasting solutions - not just quick fixes - for our entire community.
Simply put, we believe in advancing the common good and creating opportunities for a better life for all. Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life; the opportunity to have a quality education that leads to a stable job, the opportunity to have enough income to support a family through retirement, and the opportunity to have good health.
That’s why our work is focused on the three building blocks for a good life:
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 all families are financially stable, when people are healthy.
Our goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. LIVE UNITED means being a part of the change. It take everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.
