BASIC HUMAN NEEDS

United Way funds efforts to provide Central Virginia with the essentials that every human needs – water, shelter, safety, food, etc. We recognize that improving health, education and financial stability is different when citizens are hungry, cold or frightened.

From day one, United Way had embraced this concept. We are committed to supporting human dignity and improving the quality of like for all citizens of our service area.
