Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our donors, staff, and volunteers improve our community by changing one life at a time. In Worcester alone, more than 80,000 people live at or below the poverty level. 1 in 5 students from low-income families will not graduate on time. Statewide, more than 700,000 children and adults experience food insecurity, and the hunger rate in the state is growing. These are complex problems that require complex solutions and cooperation between organizations. United Way unites community agencies working to tackle these issues by focusing on 4 strategic areas–what we consider the building blocks for a successful life.
