What We Do

Communities Thrive If Our Children Are Thriving

We bring together people and resources to tackle complex issues and drive sustainable positive change in order to help our communities thrive. Improving individual lives and entire communities in our state is our approach. It involves key programs: targeted education, income, and health resources in communities of great need in New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties.

For individuals and organizations that want to help advance the strength of their community , United Way is the platform. We enable  individuals, groups and companies to make a difference (individually and collectively) in whatever way they wish to contribute their time, talent and treasure. United Way helps create a thriving community in three ways:

• Early Education Success: Providing academic support to ensure reading proficiency by 3rd grade

College and Career Readiness: Helping our young adults acquire and develop positive, personal assets, career pathways and reliable employment

• Financial Stability: Connecting individuals and families to opportunities to secure economic stability and roadmap for financial empowerment
