About United Way

UNITED, we change lives. The United Way of Westchester and Putnam is an anti-poverty organization that supports education, income and health initiatives to help residents become self-sufficient.

We recognize that 40% of our neighbors live in poverty or paycheck to paycheck, what we call ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed).These are often hardworking families struggling to make ends meet and
provide a better life for their children.

We achieve results by investing dollars or essential goods in programs with proven results. We provide direct services to those who struggle like our free, confidential 2-1-1 Helpline or our Ride United Food Distribution efforts. And
we foster collaborations with other community stakeholders, leaders and partners to change the way we look at and solve problems.

Our work positively impacts hundreds of thousands of individuals every year.
