More than 100 years ago, we set a vision to make our St. Louis Community better. Our vision today remains the same: Help people live their best possible lives.
A strong community has many components that each play an important role. To build a stronger community, we believe our region must have high-performing nonprofit organizations, a desire for collaboration around needs and solutions, a focus on racial equity, and strong outcomes for programs serving people.
Our Safety Net nonprofit partners help people throughout our 16-county region get back on their feet, learn, grow, and become financially stable. They are here to help people bounce back, so that each of us has the opportunity to live our best possible lives.
Because of your generous support, United Way will provide critical funding to a network of safety net nonprofits:
