Mission: United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona's mission is to build a thriving community by uniting people, ideas and resources.

Programs: We are uniting for an educated, healthy and thriving community. United Way goes beyond temporary fixes to create lasting change in our community. United Way convenes people and organizations to find innovative solutions that positively impact more than 155,000 lives in Southern Arizona a year. We do this by improving educational and life outcomes for children, youth and young adults by advancing equity and excellence in education; improving employment and financial security outcomes of adults for life-long well-being; and by improving the quality of living and dying for older people. United Way programs and partners provide a broad spectrum of improving the community including the Cradle to Career Program, the Family Support Alliance, Read on Tucson, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), Siemer Family Stability Program, The ELDER Alliance, and Arizona End of Life Care Partnership and our annual Days of Caring Event.

United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona creates important spaces where human services stakeholders come to the table and work together to better the community.
Through their efforts, various organizations that might have perceived each other as competitors, instead find common ground to share in work that results in great outcomes for children and families in So AZ.

Through the good work of United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona, in particular the Green Valley Satellite office, I was able to get certified to be a family childcare provider and started my own business. They connected me to tools and information that empowered me to be a success. Additionally, they are a friendly local resource and they even helped me to become a citizen and attended my swearing in ceremony to be a U.S. Citizen and helped me to get registered to vote. They also helped me get my taxes done at no cost at the local library this tax season. I am grateful for the work of United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona.
