Westchester and Putnam are considered to be two of the most affluent counties in the country. They are portrayed as being filled with sprawling mansions, charming suburbs, and bustling cities. But the truth is that four out of 10 households are struggling financially… they are living in poverty or from paycheck to paycheck. Sometimes having to work multiple jobs just to cover their families’ basic needs.
As a supporter of the United Way of Westchester and Putnam, you are part of the answer.
We work to change the lives of those residents in our communities who are suffering by focusing on their needs today, preparing them for stability tomorrow, and ensuring a brighter future for the next generation.
Through our 2-1-1 helpline, we give hope to people when they don’t know where to start
United Way of Westchester and Putnam promotes financial stability and independence for families and individuals—often single mothers, through our Teach Me to Fish program and financial wellness tools.
United Way is working to break the strong-arm of intergenerational poverty at the root by focusing on early literacy in children and helping youth achieve their full potential.
United way partners with governments, school districts, nonprofit agencies, businesses and individuals to make a lasting impact in our Westchester and Putnam communities.
We are more than the fundraisers, we are the hand raisers; we are the game changers.
Be part of the change. Give, advocate and volunteer for United Way.
