Our Work

We envision a stronger Greater St. Louis region where people have access to the resources, tools, and services they need to thrive.

Every day, we answer the call to help our Missouri and Illinois neighbors in need. United Way started with a vision to make our community better. A century later, we still have that vision.

Through community generosity and voice, data-driven insights, understanding need, and making strategic investments into programs and services that achieve outcomes, we can take one step closer to creating the region we envision.
