Mission: United way of treasure valley fights for the health, education and financial stability of everyone in the treasure valley through innovative and collaborative community efforts.
Programs: Community impact initiatives - we fight by collecting, analyzing, and leveraging comprehensive community level data to set the course for long-lasting change in the treasure valley. Our tri-annual community assessment is now the primary data set used by major treasure valley health systems, school districts, and nonprofits to inform and guide their work. This data drives the design and implementation of united way's 21st century solutions aimed at reducing poverty, with an emphasis on children. United way's community impact initiatives focus on the creation and support of policies, systems, and environmental changes that improve the quality of life for all treasure valley residents by removing barriers and providing opportunities for success.

community investments - powered by community donations and driven by community assessment data. Grants to aligned, trusted, local community partner's programs improve the quality of life for thousands of residents by providing opportunities for success. These grants ensure children succeed by entering school ready to learn and provide support to students inside and outside of school hours. They help create and sustain healthy habits, provide access to preventative medical, dental and behavioral health services for low-income individuals and families. They provide job training, leading to livable-wage jobs, asset development, and financial literacy. They also help low-income families obtain affordable, permanent housing and much more.

We perform this service as a courtesy to our donors.
community engagement and volunteerism - serving as the community convener, united way's community engagement work brings people from major corporations, banks, hospitals, small businesses, faith organizations, civic groups, nonprofits, schools, governments, as well as individuals of all types together. Through equitable volunteer-based partnerships, we lift up children and families in the treasure valley. One way we win through community engagement is by supporting our 4,500 homeless students. Together, engaged community members work side-by-side to ensure homeless and low-income children receive basic needs items that combat hunger and improve hygiene and health, which increases school attendance, leading to graduation and post-secondary education.
