Metro United Way brings our community together to change the odds for our kids and families.

Our Work

Live United

Research clearly shows that improved educational attainment offers the greatest opportunity for our community's children to succeed, ensuring lifelong financial stability and healthier lives.

That is why our top priority is to mobilize our community to ensure that our children are ready to learn when they arrive at kindergarten. Because we all win when a child succeeds in school, when a neighborhood turns around, when families have good health and when workers have solid jobs.
