What We Do
United Way has become synonymous with caring and helping children, families and individuals. We have a long tradition of helping people with basic needs – food, clothing, shelter and safety – and changing lives through strong, well-managed programs.
United Way is also engaging the community to get to the heart of problems. In San Antonio, United Way focuses on improving early care and education for children, helping students succeed in school, and strengthening families. The United Way 2-1-1 Help Line is a critical link for over half a million callers a year seeking assistance and referrals to health and human services across the area.
Through community initiatives like these and investment in 135 outcomes-based programs at 62 agencies, United Way is helping to change people’s lives. For more details about what we do, please refer to the index on the left.
