What We Do

We win by Living United. By forging unlikely partnerships. By finding new solutions to old problems. By mobilizing the best resources. And by inspiring individuals to join the fight against our community’s most daunting social crises.

We listened to you – donors, community leaders, and our non-profit partners. After years of working to develop the best solutions for our community, United Way is pleased to announce 38 partners are joining the fight to move the needle on our region’s most critical problems. United, we will provide measurable results that will strengthen the Quad Cities.

United Way developed a Community Impact Plan to address our community’s most pressing needs. The best partners were selected to yield measurable results that will affect real change in our community.

We want all students to enter school ready to learn, perform at grade level and stay in school, and graduate from high school prepared.

United, we will work to ensure all Quad Citizens have food, shelter, and transportation, can increase their income through education and training, and build financial stability.

We will help individuals and families live in a safe, healthy environment and have access to mental health and substance abuse treatment.
