We know that preparing children for kindergarten and keeping them on the path to high school graduation is a strong indicator for their success down the road. We also provide financial literacy tools for their parents, so that both generations can thrive simultaneously.
Our Navigation Center is able to connect individuals who call 2-1-1 to human services, like counseling and utility assistance, and in some cases, can even set up health appointments for people and send reminders.
Despite the success we’ve had so far, there is still much work to be done to ensure that our neighbors are able to experience the side of Austin that we are so proud to showcase – a thriving community with economic opportunity for all.
United Way for Greater Austin is determined to unite and inspire philanthropy in our city in order to reduce the level poverty in our city.
Every day in Austin, we’re working to ensure each child has access to high-quality education, every family has the tools they need to be financially stable, and health and human services are readily available for all.
