Who We Are
United Way of the Wine Country is dedicated to improving the lives of local children, families and individuals by mobilizing the caring power of our community. For over 40 years, we have been working with active community members, business leaders, nonprofit organizations and government agencies to address the most critical issues affecting our community. Led by a diverse group of local volunteers, we are deeply committed to achieving lasting solutions - not just quick fixes - for people in our own backyard by:
•Supporting programs and services that directly help local people
•Advocating for public policy changes such as healthcare for all California children
•Helping people contribute their time and talent through volunteer opportunities
United Way believes that everyone deserves a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, income that can support a family through retirement, and good health. To create lasting changes in education, income and health, United Way focuses on solving the underlying causes of common problems.
Each of us has something special to contribute. Together, united, we can inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.
