United Way works for a healthier America

Whether it is a neighbor without health insurance, a victim of abuse, or someone struggling with mental illness or an addiction, United Ways are working to ensure everyone has access to affordable and quality care.  We are working to make people more aware of health risks and the potential effects they have on ourselves and others, starting from birth.  We work working to make changes which will enable more people to live healthier lives.
