Today’s United Way focuses on addressing the underlying causes of community issues and why problems exist. United Way supports programs that are not just ‘stop gap’ measures, but ultimately preventative ones that create real and lasting change by improving peoples’ lives. Social issues are not limited to any one particular city or to one kind of family, they are everywhere. That’s why United Way works throughout Ventura County to help build stronger communities.
No single group can address the complex problems that matter most. Through its Community Impact strategy, United Way engages the community to identify those areas where it can make the greatest difference.
