United Way of Greater St. Louis

A nonprofit organization

United Way continues to flourish and use its storied past as a guide on how to best serve the community. Instead of supporting a single cause, we focus on 5 impact areas – essential needs, early childhood and youth success, health and wellbeing, jobs and financial mobility, and community stability and crisis response.

United Way equips over 160 local nonprofits with vital funding and training resources to keep our region’s safety net healthy and help us fulfill these impact areas. These nonprofits and more make use of United Way’s Volunteer Center to galvanize the community around their efforts. We operate the region’s largest Volunteer Center that mobilizes thousands of local people, companies, and groups through meaningful volunteer opportunities.

We also connect our neighbors to resources and support near them using our 211 helpline and navigation center. 211 is a free resource that is available 24/7 to find providers, programs and services for those in need. Each year we receive more than 100,000 requests for help from our community through 211.

All of these efforts are a part of our valued mission of helping people live their best possible lives. Working together, we will continue to create a stronger, healthier, and more equitable St. Louis region.
