Together We Thrive
The Twin Cities are known as one of the best places to live in the country. But that’s not true for everyone: 1 in 4 of our neighbors cannot afford their basic needs. Together, we will create a community where all people thrive, regardless of income, race or place.
We are Changemakers
We’ve been around a long time because we are committed to our community. We’ll also try something new if it means we get closer to our goal of lifting our community out of poverty.

Get HelpOur 2-1-1 service is just a call away. We have connected more than 2.5 million people to the services and resources they need since 2010. We can help you, too.
United Way in Action
There are real human beings behind the statistics. These community impact stories are a testament to why we do what we do.
"To have United Way give us opportunities to use our money, and take a day like today and use our time to have an impact on the world that we know we want to have is really special. I appreciate the opportunity to do that. "
