Ninety-five years. That’s a long time and a lot of trust. United Way of San Diego County has stayed vital to this community since 1920 for good reason: we know how to put the right
people together with the right resources to make the right things happen. Right now, our ultimate focus is to help San Diego’s children and families grow stronger.
Our Vision: United Way envisions a vibrant community built on opportunity for everyone.
Our Mission: To spark breakthrough community action that elevates every child and family toward a brighter future.
Using a collective impact approach – acting as a project manager to unify the resources of dozens of local partners – we’ve
been able to improve the lives of children and their families across the region, while engaging new partners and organizations along the way. This cross-sector collaborative approach isn't
new to United Way. Our current work with both the City Heights and the Vista Partnerships for Children, and our past efforts with Project 25, are great examples of Collective Impact in
action: where multiple stakeholders align their efforts to tackle a problem together.
The Goal: Elevate every child, from cradle to career
The Cause: Creating stable families and smart kids
The Progress: We’re tracking our success – and it’s working!
The Way: The United Way! A powerful unifying catalyst improving the lives of local children & families. Get Involved
We knit together the great work of various stakeholders to create a net that supports children and families in the challenges they face.
