What We Do
United Way for Greater Austin brings people, ideas, and resources together to fight poverty in our community. Since 1924, we have been dedicated to providing families and individuals in need with the tools and resources they need to thrive.
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.
