Unleashing the potential of greater Chicago…neighborhood by neighborhood

For more than 80 years, and amidst some of our city’s toughest challenges, United Way of Metro Chicago has linked communities together and mobilized the resources across our region to drive meaningful, measurable change. Together, with thousands of volunteers, supporters and advocates, United Way strives to build strong neighborhoods by finding solutions, supporting programs and fighting back against poverty, illness, violence and a lack of educational opportunities.

But, real change doesn’t happen overnight and it doesn’t happen alone. United, we fight for the health, education, financial stability and safety of every person in every neighborhood across the region.


United Way fights for health.

Whether it’s helping people navigate health insurance and find a primary care physician, supporting a community garden, or ensuring mental health services are accessible, we fight to keep our neighbors physically and mentally healthy in order to improve educational outcomes, job performance and create more resilient families.


United Way fights for Education.

Educated children and youth are the future. By helping children build a strong foundation in education and empowering parents to support their learning and development, we can ensure that kids have the skills to be successful in school and in life.


United Way fights for Financial Stability.

Making a commitment to improving your finances or establishing a career takes perseverance and determination. It’s not a quick fix, nor is it easy without the support of others. Being financially secure is critical for people to live productive lives, while also growing the economy and workforce.


United Way fights for Safety.

No one should have to struggle to find food, shelter and safety—the basics for survival. However, hunger, homelessness, gun violence and domestic abuse are acute problems that continue to destroy lives and potential. Stabilizing individuals and families in crisis creates a solid platform so they can focus on longer term goals.

United Way fights for stronger neighborhoods for a stronger Chicago region.

We don’t sit on the sidelines while our neighbors and neighborhoods struggle. United, we tackle the toughest issues facing our community. We find every dollar, every person who is willing to lend a hand, every advocate, every agency that makes an impact and every leader in every community and we ask them to join the fight for stronger neighborhoods. And, we can’t do it without you. Together, we can unleash the potential of greater Chicago…neighborhood by neighborhood.

Join the fight.
