Advancing the Common Good

At United Way, our work is about Advancing the Common Good. Advancing the Common Good means creating opportunities for a better life for all.

  • When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all.
  • We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable and when people have good health.

Lasting Changes

Our goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of problems. We don’t just address the symptoms of a problem,we go deeper, to get at the underlying causes.

 

 

Education, Income, Health:

There are basic things that we all need for a good life:  a quality education that leads to a stable job, income that can support a family through retirement, and good health. United Way is focused on the building blocks for a better life.

 

In Atlantic County we are focused on four core priority areas: 

  • Basic Needs and Independance
  • Safer Homes & Neighborhoods
  • Mental Wellness & Reducing Substance Abuse
  • Community Health

 

 
Annually, United Way creates a community agenda that outlines strategies to address core needs in these four priority areas. Through a competitive grants process that is led by a team of commuity volunteers, United Way invests in programs and services that deliver impactful, measurable results. United Way works hard to  administrative costs low so that contributions go to fund these vital programs and services.
