Our Impact

United Way of Santa Cruz County goes beyond temporary fixes to create lasting solutions that lifts up our community. We focus on youth success, family financial stability and health because these are the building blocks for a good quality of life. United Way identifies and builds on community strengths, helps individuals and groups with specific community interests find ways to contribute their time and talents, support community change efforts, advocate public policy changes, and support direct service programs.
