Help end poverty by helping kids succeed in school. Volunteers support the Square One Project, United Way’s 20-year promise to significantly increase the number of local kids who graduate from high school ready for success in college and beyond.
Help kids learn to read, provide tax help to families in need, serve healthy meals, build community gardens, and more.
Ensure Strong Support
Volunteers help provide a healthy support system for children to succeed in school. We are making sure kids have everything they need, from healthy meals and stable homes, to supportive and strong relationships. There are so many ways to get involved.

United Way’s Women in Philanthropy has partnered with Sacramento County to help collect items needed for the Foster Youth Emancipation Basket program. Many foster youth emancipating from the system do not have necessary household items to get started on their own, and we want to help make that transition a little bit easier.
