Results Are Measured In Changed Lives.

Today’s United Way of Ventura County focuses on addressing the underlying causes of community issues and why problems exist. United Way of Ventura County supports programs that are not just ‘stop gap’ measures, but ultimately preventative ones that create real and lasting change by improving peoples’ lives. We focus on areas such as health, financial stability, and education programs. 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.
