The focus of United Way is to bring the entire community-individuals, businesses, and organizations-together to create lasting change in our community. With an emphasis on education, health, and income-the building blocks for quality of life-United Way of Central Kansas believes that everyone wins when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, and when people are in good health.
To be eligible for United Way of Central Kansas funding, the funded agency must be doing work in one of our three focus areas.
- Health-By making it easier for individuals to access substance abuse programs, receive quality health care and access nutritious foods, we’re fighting to help everyone get—and stay—healthy.
- Education-We’re fighting to shift the odds so tomorrow’s leaders can build a better foundation today. With an approach to education that spans from cradle to career, we’re ensuring every child gets a strong start in life, teenagers have the tools to learn and grow, and young adults thrive in the job market.
- Financial Stability-We’re fighting to put every person, in every community, on a path toward financial empowerment. That starts with access to services, job training, credit counseling and money management programs.
