Foothills United Way improves lives and creates lasting change. We are the community leader in bringing together the community to address the issues our community finds most pressing, including early childhood success/strengthening families, community resilience, affordable housing and community engagement.
Our role in advancing the common good is to engage people and organizations across the community who provide the passion, expertise, and resources needed to get things done. Together, we support programs, organize volunteers, collaborate on much-needed initiatives, and help other nonprofits leverage resources and build capacity to effectively fulfill their missions. We determine our community’s needs and dedicate resources to those programs and initiatives that are proven and accountable.
Strengthening Families for Early Childhood Success: Give parents and families the tools they need to make sure that children are receiving support and love they need to be on their way to success by age eight.
Community Resilience: Integrate community stressor preparedness strategies into our work to strengthen the social safety net.
Community Engagement: Continue to grow our corporate volunteer program, develop supports for school age and university students to volunteer, supporting neighborhood level Community Leaders and engage in community outreach to integrate grassroots input into community initiatives.
