Orange County United Way's goal is not a quick fix to treat symptoms; it's about creating lasting change by addressing issues before they become problems. United Way partners with individuals and organizations to develop plans that proactively deal with critical health and human care issues which ultimately build self-sufficient lives.
To achieve Orange County United Way's goal to build self-sufficient lives, United Way is focused on two approaches:
First: We support a safety-net of care to ensure that basic needs are met today.
Second: We support solutions for long-term change focused on education and financial stability to move people from dependency to self sufficiency.
