1 in 4 New Yorkers does not have enough income and earnings to pay for basic necessities. United Way of New York City wants to change this. We're fighting poverty by working to make sure low-income people get the support services they need right now, while simultaneously driving real, system-wide change in our community.
We focus on education, income stability and health—the building blocks of a good life. Because the nonprofit sector plays such a critical role in the delivery of health and human services across New York City, we also work to build the capacity of local nonprofits to enable them to deliver the highest-quality services possible.
