caring power of the
San Diego community.
People Helping People
Since 1920, United Way of San Diego County has been an agent of change. Yet our role as a community leader in solving Health & Human Services issues has remained unchanged.
We advance the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all. Our focus is on education, income and health — integrate these human needs and you have the building blocks for a good life.
Why? Because statistics show us that:
- Every year, a million teens drop out of high school
- Only one in three working parents earn enough to support their families
- Only one in three adults are considered healthy
We're helping children, youth, struggling families and the chronically homeless. We're using our unique role to build public/private partnerships that are making significant progress in all of these areas.
To help solve these community issues, we recruit the people and organizations who bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to get things done. As we work to strengthen our community and bring real solutions to our region's most pressing problems, we help improve the lives of all San Diegans.
In 2010, thanks to the many donors, volunteers and advocates who have supported us over the years, we celebrated 90 years uniting San Diegans and changing lives.
That's what it means to LIVE UNITED®
