Excellence Academy Teachers Taking Advantage of Opportunities

Teachers from our Excellence Academy early learning centers recently visited Houston’s early learning program, and preschool teacher, Lowryanna Shelby, couldn’t wait to get back and implement her learning.

High School Graduation

Changing the Odds on High School Graduation

Kids with someplace to go..go places!

Thousands of young people are alone and unsupervised between 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM placing them at risk for problems. That’s why places like the Parkland Boys & Girls Club play such an important role in our community. 

Family Engagement

2-1-1 Operator

Everyone could use a little extra help from time to time. And looking for help can be the most difficult when you're searching for assistance for the first time. That’s why Metro United Way’s 2-1-1 service is available 365 days a year, 24/7. 

Health and Safety


Ages and Stages Questionnaires helps develop healthy kids

“Ages and Stages Questionnaires saved us from having surgery and gave my little boy the opportunity to stand on his own two feet before his first birthday.  Not only does the ASQ educate parents on the development of their child, it also arms them with support when seeking help for their children."

Live United in Action

The Mayor’s Give a Day week of volunteer service is happening now through April 20th. This is a great time to experience the joy of helping others. Metro United Way is again proud to serve as the backbone to coordinate volunteers for this community event.
