Mission: Mobilizing our community to improve lives
It all began in 1923, when a coalition of Lafayette residents banded together to garner $23,000 to fund nine agencies. Since 2004, United Way has been developing new solutions to address issues in our community and bridge gaps in services.
Working with our United Way agencies and stakeholders, we have focused our work on education, income and health.
United Way is working in these areas to create lasting change by leveraging financial, human and other resources against the root causes of some of our community's greatest challenges. For more information, visit uwlafayette.org.
