About

United Way starts at Square One.
At United Way California Capital Region, we believe creating stronger, healthier, more compassionate communities starts at Square One: Helping every family succeed so their community can too. Families know what they need to thrive. We are their partners on that path, connecting them with resources to achieve their goals.

Our path forward.
United Way California Capital Region is now working on an even larger scale to help families heal and meet our 20-year promise to significantly reduce poverty in the Capital Region. We are laying solid steppingstones on our path to help every family thrive and build a healthy community.
