WE FIGHT FOR THE EDUCATION HEALTH, HOUSING AND FINANCIAL STABILITY OF EVERY PERSON IN ORANGE COUNTY.
Who We Are
Today’s United Way takes on four of Orange County’s toughest challenges. The ones that nobody talks about at social gatherings. The ones that can’t be solved overnight.
Orange County’s problems are complex and interconnected. For substantial and sustainable change, we must address all four issues. We can’t focus only on education for a child who is hungry and doesn’t have a home. Here, finding a job doesn’t always mean a parent can support a family. Considering the long-term effects of these issues on every one of us, an integrated approach is key.
We fight for every student to get the quality education they deserve.
We fight for the financial stability of every family.
We fight for every child to grow up healthy and strong.
We fight for every child and their family to thrive in a permanent home.
United Way does everything possible to provide responses and solutions that protect, improve and empower lives. We fight for the four most critical, interconnected needs in Orange County, focusing on achieving goals that will benefit everyone in our community.
How do we go about it? We find new solutions to old problems. We roll up our sleeves to run essential programs and services. We’re in the streets, working directly with more than 100 partners countywide. We lead, collaborate, measure, monitor and share our progress. And inspire individuals –like you- to join us.
We’re doing more than raising funds—we’re surrounding our most critical problems with passion, expertise and resources. We know what to do and how to do it. To win the fight, we need your help.
When we’re UNITED4OC, we change the lives of adults and children right here in our community. And make a difference for every one of us.
