United Way of Central Ohio

MY UNITED WAY

Poverty holds all of us back—individually and collectively—from achieving a better life. And it will take all of us working together to reduce it. We’re helping to lead the fight against poverty by creating more opportunities for people to succeed. When more people succeed, our community gets stronger; and that helps all of us.

Your Gift = Local Impact

We’re tackling root causes and providing effective pathways out of poverty by bringing together volunteers, donors, organizations, businesses, community leaders and YOU, because we need you to join us in the fight against poverty.

Improve Lives. Strengthen Our Community.

With the support and encouragement of his mentor, Tiwuan overcame obstacles such as homelessness and hunger to graduate high school and attend college. Because people like you cared, Tiwuan had a support system and opportunities that helped him develop to his fullest potential.

MY UNITED WAY

We support more than 180 programs that fight poverty on multiple fronts by helping people meet basic needs, preparing children for success in school, helping people learn new skills and find jobs, and connecting people to health and wellness services. People often need support in a number of areas—not just one.
