Arrowhead United Way is working to advance the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all. By focusing on education, income, and health, we strive to bring about lasting changes that address community problems. We all win when people emerge from crisis, achieve their potential and live independent lives.
Education is the cornerstone of individual and community success. It is fundamental to the community’s economic prosperity because a well-educated workforce attracts the best jobs. Arrowhead United Way is working to improve access to education and promote academic success.
Income enables families to provide themselves with basic needs. If a family is not producing enough income to cover expenses, the greater community is affected. Arrowhead United Way is working to bring financial stability by assisting with basic needs, legal help, job placement programs, and financial education.
Health is so vital that it impacts daily life. An individual’s health affects their earning potential and the community’s productivity. A health issue can be so severe that it may result in continuous financial decline and ruin. Arrowhead United Way is working to increase awareness about health risks, improve access to healthcare, and encourage healthy behavior.
