United Way — Live United
What is The 2020 Promise to the Community?
Human service providers in Lane County are incredible at helping people with their individual challenges. But experience shows that a family with one human service need is usually a family with many needs. Addressing them requires immediate support to address a crisis and a longer term commitment to remove underlying causes. It requires the aligned and coordinated efforts of many agencies working together over time, to change a family’s condition and set them on the road to success.
United Way clearly sees the need to promote cooperative efforts over an extended period to achieve significant solutions. Fundamental problems cannot be addressed in a few months, or a single year. It takes time and the lasting commitment of people who believe that success is possible.
United Way has built its 2020 Goals to achieve meaningful outcomes, and we know we can’t get there in one year. That is the basis for the 2020 Promise to the Community. Promise to stand united with us and together we can promise to make a healthier, safer, and more prosperous community.
You can maximize the return on your investment of time, money, or advocacy, by promising to compound your passion and your commitment with the passion and commitment of others and create an impact that goes way beyond what you could do alone.
