United Way of Greater Los Angeles
United Way is on a mission to permanently break the cycle of poverty for their most vulnerable neighbors – but they can’t do it without you. Together, they will fight poverty at its roots by focusing on long-term solutions in education, housing, and economic mobility to solve the fundamental problems facing the most vulnerable neighbors in L.A. County.
Founded in 1964, United Way of Greater Los Angeles moved to Downtown Los Angeles in 1995 to symbolically confront the epicenters of poverty.
CREATING PATHWAYS OUT OF POVERTY
They're on a mission to permanently break the cycle of poverty for our most vulnerable neighbors: low-income families, students, veterans and people experiencing homelessness.
That means tackling the big problems. The ones people think can’t be solved. The ones that require leaders across sectors to unite and design groundbreaking solutions to their biggest problems. And by focusing on education, housing, and economic mobility, they can attack poverty at its roots to ensure better lives for all Angelenos.
Real and sustaining change requires more than money. By focusing on local, state, and national public policy, they fight poverty’s root causes through the systems that sustain them. They led the fight that resulted in nearly $5 billion in civic funds being dedicated to solutions to ending poverty. See more
