OUR FOCUS ON POVERTY
United Way is creating partnerships to reduce poverty in greater Greensboro.
For years, United Way of Greater Greensboro raised and allocated money to a network of agencies that met a variety of worthwhile needs in our community. Times have changed and so have our community’s needs.
With an increasing poverty rate of 20%, United Way’s board of directors made a bold decision to focus the organization’s work on breaking the cycle of poverty in our community. Now, United Way is leading the community in the critical mission of breaking the cycle of poverty in greater Greensboro.
United Way fights for the opportunity, prosperity and future of every person in greater Greensboro.
How we live out our Credo:
- United Way creates partnerships to reduce poverty in greater Greensboro.
- Replacing poverty with self-sufficiency requires more than a handout. It requires everyone in our community working together to help people achieve long-term and sustainable success.
- We lead innovative initiatives like our Family Success Center, which offers an array of services in one location so that entire families can access all the help they need to further their education and careers and improve their financial stability.
