Our Work


… the building blocks for a good life and a strong community.

Education is essential to getting and keeping a job with a wage that can sustain a family and has health benefits. An income that can cover today and save for tomorrow builds a family’s solid foundation. Good health helps children stay on track at school and adults be productive at work. Remove any of these building blocks and the other two topple. Build them all up and you have a cornerstone for individual and community prosperity.

United Way of Lake and Sumter Counties is focused on supporting the education and success of children and youth, financial stability, and independence of families and individuals and healthy lives for all in the community. Through this comprehensive approach, United Way can effectively address specific local issues and create measurable change.
