United Way invests in solutions to our community's biggest challenges by partnering with all sectors of the community to identify resources and leverage volunteers to make the Dutchess-Orange region a better place for our children and families.

No one doubts that the challenges are vast.

United Way is working to change things. 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 Our Community's Health

With your guidance, we identified priorities for community-fund investment. Together, we will focus on outcomes that will:

Provide parents with information and tools to understand all stages of their child's development;
Improve the quality of early learning centers across our region;
Provide opportunities for learning outside of the school day;
Connect children with mentors, tutors and enrichment programs to ensure grade level achievement;
Help individuals and families overcome financial crisis;
Provide education to improve financial literacy, reduce debt and increase savings;
Connect low to moderate income individuals with opportunities to increase annual income through tax programs and workplace advancement;
Improve access to nutritious foods and recreation to decrease obesity;
Help adolescents and young adults develop the skills to form healthy relationships with a focus on reducing instances of bullying and intimate partner violence; and
Reduce at-risk behaviors including substance, alcohol and drug abuse among adolescents and young adults.
