United Way of Greater Atlanta

How are the children?

Communities can thrive today and reach their greatest future potential only if our children our thriving. That's why United Way's focus is on creating a community where "all the children are well."

By ensuring that every child in our community has the opportunity to reach his or her potential, we are building a strong future for Greater Atlanta -- a future where every individual and family can thrive.

Communities that can say "all the children are well" have babies who are born healthy; kids who read proficiently by 3rd grade; teens graduating from high school prepared for college, careers and life; children who are growing up in secure homes and safe neighborhoods, with healthy food and access to medical care to keep them healthy; and families living in communities where people are educated, employed and housed.

United Way brings together people and resources to tackle complex community issues and drive sustainable, positive change to help our community thrive.

United Way helps create a thriving community in three ways:

1. We draw together the efforts of people and organizations across Greater Atlanta's 13 counties to work collectively on issues most strongly affecting child, family and community well-being.

2. We invest funds where they have the most leverage in addressing those pressing issues, directing the dollars from our Impact Fund.

3. We deploy the power of 16,000 volunteers toward work across Greater Atlanta's 13 counties.

Thanks for your interest in our page!

We really appreciate your comments, photos, videos and links. However, we do review all comments and remove any that are inappropriate or offensive.

Thanks again for sharing and contributing.

Engage and bring together people and resources to drive sustainable improvements in the well-being of children, families and individuals in the community.
