Programs and Services
United Way of Erie County is a local social impact organization focused on crushing poverty through education. United Way strategically deploys resources in Erie County to support low-income children achieving academic success. Economically disadvantaged children face many significant barriers to learning that keep them from being successful in school, including lack of basic needs, mental/behavioral health support, vision and dental services, trauma and more. Before low-income students can focus on school these barriers must be removed. Family stability is also critical to assuring children show up at school ready and eager to learn and as such is an important part of United Way's work.
