The United Way of Southern Chautauqua County builds a stronger community by meeting the most important human care needs of our children, families, adults, and neighborhoods. We involve, organize, and motivate individuals and community organizations to identify needs and create positive change. United Way and its partners develop the resources needed to support these efforts, and use them effectively to achieve measurable results.
Since it was founded in 1920, United Way has evolved from simply a fundraising organization to become a true community builder. United Way now takes an active role in developing programs that enhance the quality of life throughout Southern Chautauqua County. By acting as a partner with health and human service agencies, schools, government, and the faith community, your United Way works year round, connecting people to programs, and programs to other programs, in order to change and improve lives.
