United Way California Capital Region’s mission is to build stronger, healthier and more compassionate communities. We are dedicated to improving the lives of families and children in the Amador, El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties.
United Way’s mission is more important than ever.
The pandemic has weakened communities and exacerbated injustices. When it comes to healing our region, many people have no idea where to start.
Long-term, sustainable community development is crucial for neighborhoods to rise from poverty. We work with residents in targeted undervalued communities to build capacity and turn resources into power to make change. We value lived experiences and work with, not for, community members.
United Way California Capital Region is responding to the Coronavirus COVID-19 health crisis in a variety of ways to ensure continuity of operations and vital community programs.
COVID-19 Relief Fund
As the nation responded to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, United Way California Capital Region created the United Way California Capital Region COVID-19 Local Relief Fund to provide essential resources for low-income households.
