By closing opportunity gaps, we unlock pathways in every neighborhood and create a more inclusive and prosperous future for all. That’s how our entire community can Rise United.
Here at United Way, we face today’s challenges with determination and optimism. Our positivity radiates through our work and creates change for everyone in the Quad Cities. We believe that when we all win, the Quad Cities is stronger.
At United Way Quad Cities, we have a vision: that every Quad Citizen, regardless of race or zip code, has the opportunity and access to develop their full potential.
United Way Quad Cities seeks to engage the entire community in our work. We seek to value diversity by respecting and appreciating race, religion, language differences, abilities, national origin, ethnicity, age, gender, gender identity & expression, sexual orientation and socio-economic status. That commitment is reflected in all aspects of United Way’s work — including our staff, volunteers, partners, vendors and the community we serve.
Your investment through United Way Quad Cities can bolster programs like Books & Barbers which support student learning and social-emotional health.
Starting the summer of 2020, United Way convened leaders across the community to address systemic barriers holding neighbors behind.
