​Promoting Financial Stability and Independence

United Way is working to bring about measurable, sustainable social change by uniting people, ideas, and resources to tackle the most pressing issues throughout Southern Arizona. 

Improving People's Health and Well-being

Today, United Way’s focus is to make a difference in the lives of children, families and seniors. We strive to make sure children are ready to learn, families are safe and self-sufficient and seniors remain independent and active.

Thanks to your help, we are achieving visible, lasting changes for Southern Arizonans.

We accomplish our results by bringing people together — subject experts, business leaders,donors, neighborhoods, and members of local nonprofit agencies — to help identify our community’s most critical social issues. In forming these partnerships, we are better able to address the underlying causes of problems in our community and prevent them from happening.

The “new” United Way is focused on achieving real results through the implementation of strategies that work. To achieve the results donors want and expect, we need more resources directed to our work and our three focus areas so that we can make an even greater positive impact on the lives of children, families and seniors.
