TAUW focuses on three building blocks to a better life: education, health/safety and financial stability.

 

Education: TAUW's purpose in funding education is to ensure quality early childhood development programs designed to erase the gap between children who are ready for kindergarten and those who are not; to support youth development programs that increase the number of high school graduates in our community; and to increase literacy and academic achievement through parent involvement.

 

Health/Safety: TAUW invests in health organizations that address child and adult obesity and provide public exercise and nutrition education. In the area of health, TAUW also supports safe housing for the mentally ill, programs to reduce addictions in youth and adults and services for those with disabilities.

 

Financial stability: TAUW funds basic needs for families, for the homeless and the near-homeless. TAUW also supports credit counseling, legal aid services, employment programs, homeless and domestic violence shelters.
