Message from the President of the United Way of Greater Waterbury
Welcome to unitedwaygw.org!
United Way of Greater Waterbury is working to advance the common good by focusing on the building blocks for a good life. A quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and ensuring our most basic needs are met.
Education, income and basic needs. At United Way, these are known as 'the three pillars of advancement'. Remove any one of these from a family or individual and the road to stability becomes increasingly difficult.
United Way is investing human and financial resources in these areas to create opportunities for those who need it most. Our goal is to create long lasting changes that will prevent problems from happening in the first place.
We all win when a child enters school ready to learn, a parent can provide for their family and our neighbors have enough to eat, a roof over their heads and access to adequate healthcare.
It is difficult work in challenging times. Only by choosing to LIVE UNITED can we accomplish our ambitious goals and create the change we all want to see throughout our ten-town community.
This website is here for you to get help, give help and to keep you informed of the needs of our community. We hope you will visit often as well as utilize the links found here to our facebook page, YouTube channel and Enewsletter signup so you will always be up to date on the opportunities available to you to make a difference.
Thank you for visiting unitedwaygw.org and choosing to LIVE UNITED.
