United Way's mission is to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another. In San Antonio, United Way focuses on helping veterans and military families, as well as improving early care and education for children, helping students succeed in school, and strengthening families. The United Way 2-1-1 Help Line is a critical link for over half-a-million callers a year seeking assistance and referrals to health and human services across the area.
Whether you're interested in mentoring a young person, preparing food bags for clients in a food pantry, or spending an afternoon with a senior, there’s something for every interest and ability. Visit the volunteer recruitment site to find opportunities.
United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County’s Women United’s annual fundraising luncheon, Power of the Purse, helps to raise money for Women United’s signature cause: the Childcare Scholarship Program, which provides parents who are pursuing economic stability through higher education and/or full-time job training with financial assistance for childcare.
