United Way works every day to advance the common good by focusing on the building blocks for a better life.

The simple fact is in order to function at an optimal level one needs to be healthy. Regardless of age, good health practices are vital to our well-being, our ability to function in society, our ability to learn, and to our longevity. The health of our citizens is a strong indicator of the health of our community. United Way works to improve access to quality health care and improve the overall health and welfare of individuals. We work with partners to improve and support healthy lifestyles for infants, youth, adults, families, and elderly.
