Austin: The Tale of Two Cities

Not everyone knows that Austin is actually two cities. There’s a city that many enjoy full of opportunity; there’s a city that often hides in the shadows where people are working hard, but still have trouble making ends meet.

We at United Way for Greater Austin are here to introduce you to the Austin you’re less familiar with, because we know that as soon as you meet her, you’ll want to pitch in and help.
