What We Do

Who We Are

While most charities focus on a single group or issue, United Way of the Quad Cities tackles issues facing the Quad Cities as a whole. We bring together people and resources to identify, prioritize, and solve our community's toughest issues to achieve long-term, lasting change. 

What We Do

United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community. 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. 

United Way of the Quad Cities focuses on helping Quad Citizens in need:

  • Overcome Educational Barriers: by helping children effectively enter and perform well in school, graduating ready for college or career
  • Break the Cycle of Poverty: by helping Quad Citizens receive adequate food and shelter, as well as the educational tools necessary to be self-sufficient
  • Stay Healthy and Safe: by strengthening families and helping those struggling with health challenges receive the treatment and support necessary to improve their long-term well being.
