About Us

Improving Our Community. One Life at a Time. One Gift at a Time.

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 more than 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 137 programs at 69 agencies, United Way is helping to change people’s lives.
