We help children get a strong start in life, start school ready to succeed, and build critical reading skills to equip them for success in school, work and life.
We build stronger communities where families have increased access to health care, as well as healthy foods, activities and environments, creating healthier beginnings and healthier lives.
IMPACT: FINANCIAL STABILITY
We give people the education and tools to get better jobs and build a solid foundation that improves their lives and the lives of their children.

In March of 2020, Yavapai County was faced with unprecedented challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Numerous nonprofit agencies were trying to meet the growing needs of their communities while having to close down or cancel their main revenue streams. United Way of Yavapai County took quick action by offering a COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, which awarded over $112,000 to 23 agencies. It has been UWYC’s privilege to provide support and stability during these uncertain times.
