Our Community

Our Community

United Way of Delaware envisions a world where every individual has an opportunity to succeed, and entire communities thrive as a result. By focusing on three strategic areas —Early Education, College and Career Readiness, amd Finacial Stability — United Way of Delaware can raise awareness of key issues that affect everyone, provide financial and one-on-one assistance to those who need it most, and promote social and policy change that helps strengthen people and their communities. Whether you volunteer to help a child learn to read, offer your professional skills to help job seekers put together a resume in order to find gainful employment, use your voice to raise awareness and influence policy makers on a subject you’re passionate about, or donate money in order to fund our life-changing initiatives, you are the reason United Way is able to impact the lives of millions of people.
