Education, Income & Health

Everyone deserves opportunities to achieve a good quality of life: a high-quality education that leads to a stable job, family-sustaining income through all of life’s stages, good health and a safe home.

That’s why United Way works to advance the common good by focusing on the building blocks for a good life: Education, Income and Health.

 Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time, and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected. And together, we can change the things we see around us and make Greater Milwaukee a healthier, stronger community.
