If kids aren’t reading at grade level by 4th grade, they will have a hard time keeping up across multiple subjects for years to come. Having a consistent positive adult role model, like a tutor, can improve children’s confidence and performance in all school subjects.


Standing United for Inclusion and Equity
United Way California Capital Region Statement on Racism and Injustice

People across the country are expressing their outrage for the killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and too many more.

Our United Way shares these feelings of sadness and outrage toward racial violence and injustice in our country. We are also asking ourselves how we can make a difference during this difficult time. If we are committed to building stronger, healthier, and more compassionate communities, then we must channel our justifiable outrage to collaborative action. 

We must stand united for justice.
