How does United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona improve our community?

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement and good health.

That’s why United Way’s focuses on the following impact areas:

·         The Education Impact Area focuses on helping children and young adults achieve their full potential, ensuring that our community’s children are prepared to enter school ready to learn and succeed; and are in safe places after-school with caring adults.

·         The Financial Wellness Impact Area focuses on creating stable and successful families, providing assistance to connect our community’s families to the resources they need to remain self-sufficient and to ensure that their members are safe and free from violence.

 ·         The Healthy Communities Impact Area focuses on improving the health and well-being of Southern Arizonans, providing assistance to individuals, families and seniors to improve their quality of life through health-education and resources.

United Way collaborates with community partners to help children and youth succeed, help build strong, safe families and help seniors remain independent and active.
