[ARCHIVED] United Way of Greater Atlanta

united way

That’s why United Way’s focus is on creating a community where “all the children are well.” By ensuring that every child in our community has the opportunity to reach his or her potential, we are building a strong future for Greater Atlanta – a future where every individual and family in the community can thrive.

Communities that can say “all the children are well” have babies who are born healthy; kids who read proficiently by 3rd grade; teens graduating from high school prepared for college, careers and life; children growing up in secure homes and safe neighborhoods, with healthy food, and access to medical care to keep them healthy; and families supported by communities where people are educated, employed and housed; and have ready access to good healthcare and affordable healthy foods.

United Way helps create a thriving community in three ways

  1. United Way draws together the efforts of people and organizations across Greater Atlanta’s 13 counties to work collectively on issues most strongly affecting child, family and community well-being.
  2. United Way invests funds where they have the most leverage in addressing those issues, directing the dollars from its Child Well-Being Impact Fund (dollars given to vs. through United Way).
  3. United Way deploys the power of 16,000 volunteers toward work across Greater Atlanta’s 13 counties.

When you give to United Way, you have choices.

The United Way Child Well-Being Impact Fund is dedicated to ensuring lasting, collaborative solutions to the critical problems that stand between us and a better quality of life. Our Child Well-Being Impact Fund includes four focus areas – Education, Income, Health and Homelessness – and puts your money to work where it can do the most good for children and communities across out 13-county Greater Atlanta region.
