Common Good

Advancing the Common Good

At its core, United Way of Elkhart County believes people are connected and interdependent.  When we reach out a hand to one individual, we influence the condition of all.  Everyone in Elkhart County deserves the 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 which are:


EDUCATION            INCOME                  HEALTH



Advancing the common good is about changing systems and community norms to lift up everyone.  We all win when a child succeds in school, when families are financially stable and when people are healthy. 


Great things happen when we LIVE UNITED.
