Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy. United Ways goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living United means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.
More than a slogan, LIVE UNITED is a declaration and an invitation to give, advocate and volunteer in the areas of education, income and health. For UWRA this means our commitment to improving the lives of United Way current and future retirees/alumni and using their skills to help strengthen communities served by United Way. To assist the United Way network in mobilizing around the issue areas of health, income and education and provide services to our members UWRA has concentrated on the following impact areas:
• Better quality retirement
• Leadership and skill development in Local United Ways
• Adding resources (fiscal and volunteer) to the United Way network
• Strengthening the network and services for current and future United Way alumni
UWRA - the way to STAY UNITED!
