The United Way of Pioneer Valley mobilizes people and resources to strengthen our communities.
Bringing Lasting, Positive Change to Our Region:
United Way targets its strategies at those critical passages in people's lives that determine what the future will hold for them as individuals and for their families and communities. This approach maximizes United Way's effectiveness, because it allows us to improve lives not just in the short term, and not just on the surface, but in a lasting and meaningful way that benefits the entire region.
Everyone deserves the opportunity to have a good life; a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement and good health. That's why United Way of Pioneer Valley is focused on the building blocks of a good life.
2013 Indicators Report
UWPV report linking Community Indicators to UWPV funding initiatives.
United Way of Pioneer Valley is
Education - Helping children and youth achieve their potential
Income - Promoting financial stability for individuals and families
Health - Reducing health risks
Basic/Emergency Needs - Helping individuals and families address basic needs
Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy, and when everyone can move away from crisis situations to meet their own needs.
Our goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living United means being a part of the change.
