We are dedicated to building a better Blair County by raising funds and cultivating volunteers to provide non-profit organizations with resources to address crucial needs in our community.
In 2008, United Way World Wide initiated a ten-year program designed to achieve the following goals by 2018:
- Improve education and cut the number of high school dropouts—1.2 million students, every year—in half.
- Help people achieve financial stability and get 1.9 million working families—half the number of lower-income families who are financially unstable—on the road to economic independence.
- Promote healthy lives, and increase by one-third the number of youth and adults who are healthy and avoid risky behaviors.
These goals are ambitious, but with your help, and by utilizing our core strengths—a national network, committed partners and public engagement capacity—we can achieve them.
