About

For nearly 100 years, United Way California Capital Region has faced the region’s deepest and most urgent needs by bringing people together to build stronger, healthier, more compassionate communities. 

As we face a pandemic, economic downturn, deep roots of racial inequity and poverty, these words have never been more relevant. And the need for United Way’s time tested expertise in bringing people together is needed now more than ever. We hope you will join our movement across Amador, El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties to tackle the tough questions, address root issues and create large scale solutions that end poverty and make the Greater Sacramento region stronger, healthier and more compassionate, starting with our children. 

Join us at Square One.

School is square one for reaching all families and ensuring children are healthy and successful in life. 

Sacramento area kids who graduate from college are 62% less likely to live in poverty than those who drop out of high school. 

The Square One Project is our 20-year commitment to increase the number of kids who graduate from high school ready for college or career. Together with our community partners, we provide kids and families with the tools and resources they need to succeed in school and beyond.
