United Way of Greater New Haven helps people live their best possible lives.

We bring people and organizations together to create solutions to greater New Haven's most pressing challenges in the areas of Education, Health, and Financial Stability. We tackle issues that cannot be solved by any one group working alone.

Together with our partners we house the homeless, feed the hungry, prepare infants and toddlers for kindergarten, and help families secure jobs and get on solid financial footing.
