About Us

For more than 70 years, United Way of New York City has been working for low-income New Yorkers.  We help ensure that short-term needs are being met while we simultaneously work on long-term solutions to problems, and we do this by investing in and leading evidence-based initiatives that target the root causes of poverty.  We envision a city in which all New Yorkers are able to achieve income stability, educational success, and good health.
