Our Butter Half Home
Our office in East Austin is home to one of Austin’s most iconic murals, created in 2012 by Creative Suitcase as our love letter to the Austin community. Since 2012, thousands of visitors have taken pictures in front of the “You’re My Butter Half” mural – there was even a pop-up wedding in front of the mural one Monday afternoon! The mural is also the inspiration for the work we do every day… because Austin is truly our Butter Half.

Join Our Team
“I love that my role at United Way is all about connecting people – helping to get people out and about, meeting their neighbors, learning about the work we do all over the city, and strengthening our community! It feels good to be a part of something bigger than myself.”
Jordan Gutierrez-Ramirez, Director of Events and Engagement
“My time at United Way has been and continues to be a wonderful learning experience. Not only does the work itself provide a rich source of knowledge, but also connects me with folks who are dedicated and willing to do more than what is asked — and that is inspiring. I enjoy sharing with others all that United Way’s partnerships with community organizations have achieved.”
Marcela Ramirez, Community Integration Coordinator
“I am surrounded by amazing people! I truly value having such smart and compassionate colleagues to work with every day.”
