About the United Way of Abilene

Together We Can Do More

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life: EDUCATION, INCOME, and HEALTH. We work with our Community Partners to address the needs of today and tomorrow while seeking ways to create positive, lasting change. Everyone in West Central Texas is connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

Education

Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential

Income

Promoting Financial Stability and Independence

Health

Improving People’s
Health

Sometimes it’s time. Sometimes it’s a word of encouragement. Sometimes it’s a financial investment.

United Way of Abilene relies on all three to… Volunteers like YOU are part of this collaborative effort that values stewardship and results.

The mission of the United Way of Abilene is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of the West Central Texas area. We strive to collaborate to improve lives and better our community. We will do this by actively seeking to leverage the intellectual, organizational, institutional, financial, faith-based and personal resources of our communities as the best means to make positive, measurable and lasting change for the communities we serve.

Community Accountability

United Way of Abilene takes our role as a resource, partner, and steward very seriously. We engage community volunteers to oversee every aspect of our management and financial systems to ensure we are operating at the highest levels of professionalism and excellence, and in the best interests of our community. Led by an army of volunteers, we strive to make a measurable, lasting impact that will keep our community strong.
