Mission Statement

Improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of the community to meet our most critical local health and human services needs ...doing what matters.

Description

Our Work Advancing the Common Good: Creating Opportunities for Better Lives for All


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 work is focused
on the building blocks for a good life:

Education- Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential


Income- Promoting Financial Stability and Independence


Health - Improving People's Health

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time
and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all
connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in
school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way's goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the
underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part
of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to
create a brighter future.

Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.

Would you recommend United Way Silicon Valley?

by Petra S. from Sunnyvale, CA (October 15, 2014)
United Way Silicon Valley is a great organization that helps people in various ways and one of them is to prepare income tax returns for people with low and moderate income. They also do make sure that their volunteers get good training in order to prepare tax returns. This is very rewarding opportunity
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
