About United Way of Metro Chicago
The vision of United Way of Metro Chicago is to create a stronger, more equitable Chicago region where all residents have access to the resources they need to thrive. The goal is to ensure all individuals and families can meet their basic needs and work alongside neighborhoods to reverse the effects of decades of systemic racism and disinvestment to improve health, education, and financial outcomes.
United Way does this through Partnerships, Neighborhood Networks, Regional Recovery and the United Neighborhoods Equity Fund. United Way Metro Chicago brings together businesses, government, nonprofits, and agency and community leaders to deliver funding, resources, and expertise to nonprofit organizations across greater Chicago.
