ADVANCING THE COMMON GOOD!
Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life; a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.
That's why United Way of Vance County's work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:
Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.
Our goal - United Way's goal - is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being apart of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.
