INCOME

United Way strives to improve financial stability for families through programs that reduce hunger, improve housing, transportation and job readiness. Basic human needs and financial stability are inextricably linked. Improving financial stability can radically affect many other issues in our community.

Improving access to transportation, child-care and affordable housing leads to more stability of income. Many of our partners are finding innovative ways to support these vital services.

Don's Story

Don has first hand experience of benefiting from one of United Way of Central Virginia’s partner agencies. Don is very involved with Lake Christian Ministries and shares his gratitude of receiving United Way’s services.

“I always considered myself as being independent & self reliant, so in giving in the past to churches and things like that, different programs, I never expected it to come full circle. I have to say thank you very much for all that’s been done for me.”
