United Way of South Hampton Roads brings people and organizations together to solve problems too big for any of us to solve on our own. We are a local, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to making our community a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
A chance for all children to succeed: United for Children is changing the way we work together through a public-private partnership to drive educational success for our poorest children as a way out of poverty. We support the whole child, inside and outside of the classroom.
Support during a crisis: It can happen to anyone. Catastrophic illness or injury.Loss of a job.A child born with a disability.Domestic violence.Financial problems.Homelessness.Hunger. We always have and always will provide a safety net of urgent and essential services.
Ensuring healthy minds and bodies: We fill in the gaps, providing access to critical dental, mental and physical care, and good nutrition.
Building community capacity: We practice Collective Impact, working together to identify areas of greatest need, problem-solve, and share resources to drive results. Our newest initiative, Mission United, is bringing partners to the table to support our veterans, active-duty military, and their families.
