Critical Issues in our Community
The early years are critical to develop the emotional and learning skills that help children succeed in school and life.
Promoting and developing these skills, while strengthening and supporting family stability, improves long-term outcomes for students and their families.
Our reading and attendance initiatives work in alignment with our partners to address inequities in the San Diego region and help support success for families in underserved communities.
Each year, thousands of San Diegans don’t take advantage of the Earned Income Tax Credits they earned on their tax returns. Many low-income households who think they don’t make enough money to file don’t realize they’re actually eligible for a refund.
A sudden job loss or unforeseen health crisis can severely impact a family’s well being. By leveraging federal funds, Unions United, in partnership with United Way, provides emergency assistance to individuals and their families during a crisis.
