United Way improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.
United Way of Northern Ozaukee is committed to diversity and inclusion. We value and promote inclusiveness in all aspects of our work. United Way of Northern Ozaukee employs and promotes individuals, recruits volunteers and funds programs that reflect the diversity of our local community. We believe that we are strong only when we embrace and celebrate the rich diversity and gifts of all people. Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of what it means to LIVE UNITED.
In 2008, United Way World Wide initiated a 10-year program designed to achieve the following goals by 2018:
- Improve education, and cut the number of high school dropouts — 1.2 million students, every year — in half.
- Help people achieve financial stability, and get 1.9 million working families — half the number of lower-income families who are financially unstable — on the road to economic independence.
- Promote healthy lives, and increase by one-third the number of youth and adults who are healthy and avoid risky behaviors.
These goals are ambitious, but with your help, and by utilizing our core strengths — a national network, committed partners and public engagement capacity — we can achieve them.
