Our community faces a wide range of challenges. To make a difference, United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County focuses community investments in four priority where there’s an opportunity to have the greatest impact on improving lives and our community for generations to come. Last year, the 80-year-old nonprofit touched nearly 573,000 lives, bringing people together and working with community partners to ensure that children have a safe and healthy start in life and that students stay in school and graduate.

United Way also works to strengthen individual and family well-being, while providing a safety net of emergency assistance for neighbors in urgent need of food, clothing, shelter and disaster services. The United Way 2-1-1 Helpline also provides assistance 24/7/365 as a free, anonymous social service hotline that helps people find information about local resources.
