United Way advances the common good by focusing on education, income and health. These are 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 good health.
Our investments in the community are strategic and focused for the greatest impact. We carefully assess all agencies and programs receiving United Way funding to ensure they meet our performance criteria. Agencies also undergo an in-depth financial and program management review by experienced volunteers.
Our Community Initiatives include Community Needs Assesment, Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster, United Way Connection, Gloucester County 2-1-1 and our annual Food Drive.
Since 1957, tens of thousands of local residents have turned to United Way funded programs for assistance. Whether its food for the hungry, a safe haven for runaway youth, or hospice services for the terminally ill, a United Way agency is there, ready to help.
United Way focuses on the areas that provide the greatest impact in our community. Education, income and health are the criteria when we assess an agencies.
