What We Do

United Way of Ventura County focuses on addressing the underlying causes of community issues in the areas of Education, Income and Health. We support services and programs that are not just 'stop gap' measures, but ultimately ones that create lasting change.

Education

Helping children & youth achieve their potential

In 2008, United Way launched a 10-year initiative to cut by half the number of young people who drop out of high school by 2018.

Income

Promoting financial stability & independence

United Way is working to decrease the number of families who lack financial stability and help move them towards financial independence.

Health

Improving people’s health

United Way of Ventura County’s goal for health is to increase the number of children, young people and adults who are healthy by partnering to address the root of poor health outcomes.
