Creating Mighty Change
We cannot beat today’s issues with yesterday’s thinking. Change demands bold new solutions. Therefore, we are redeploying our energies and realigning our resources and partners to drive Mighty Change in our community. Together, we tackle the systemic, interrelated issues holding us back to create more opportunity and access throughout the Valley. Progress will be tracked and reported annually, and we will change courses as needed to stay focused on the right programs and solutions to reach our goals.

Our Work
Valley of the Sun United Way envisions a community where every child, family and individual is healthy, has a safe place to live, and has every opportunity to succeed in school, in life and in work.

Healthcare & Food Access
We remove barriers to ensure everyone in our community is healthy, with a focus on access to food and healthcare.

Housing & Homelessness
We ensure all can have a safe home to call their own.

We close opportunity gaps to ensure children read at grade level by 3rd grade and youth are prepared for educational success and employment.

Workforce Development
We will open pathways to better paying jobs.
