United Way for Greater Austin brings people, ideas, and resources together to fight poverty in our community.
Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
Race has a big impact on a person’s life outcomes, so we can only break the cycle of poverty by standing up for racial justice.
That’s why we commit to:
Acknowledging and reconciling our historical role in perpetuating systems of inequality
Changing inequitable systems that prevent our community from reaching its full potential
Embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion as individuals, as an organization, and with our community
Success in life begins with a quality education. That’s why we ensure children get a strong start in life and are ready to succeed in Kindergarten and beyond.
A person’s zip code should not determine their access to quality healthcare. We connect people with affordable healthcare, healthy foods, and basic needs supports so everyone has an opportunity to thrive.
Families and individuals are facing financial obstacles that prevent them from reaching their full potential. We fight to ensure everyone in our community has the resources and opportunities they need to build a strong financial foundation.
Our Impact in 2020
Strategic work in education,
health, and financial stability
