United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley is advancing the common good in our region by providing help today in ways that strengthen tomorrow. United Way brings together the passion, know-how, and resources of thousands of individuals, organizations, businesses and government around a unified vision for our region's children, youth and families. When we work as one, every action counts for more.
United Way's priority cities: Boston, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Haverhill, Lawrence, Lowell, Lynn, Malden, Medford, Peabody, Quincy, Randolph, Revere, Salem, Somerville, Waltham, and Weymouth.
United Way's work focuses on children, youth, and families. In partnership with their supported agencies, they work to ensure that children are ready to learn when they enter school, keep students engaged in school so they graduate with options for the future, and help parents gain financial stability and become self-supporting.
United Way's investment strategy unites a network of 185 partner agencies under a set of shared goals and ties funding to the achievement of specific measurements, increasing the likelihood of driving substantial change in our region.
