United Way of DeKalb County

is working to advance the common good by focusing on Education, Income, Health, and Basic Needs.

These are the building blocks for a good life: a safe place to live and thrive, a quality education that leads to a stable job with enough income to support a family



It's a credo. A mission. A goal. A constant reminder that when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We build the strength of our neighborhoods. We bolster the health of our communities. And we change the lives of those who walk by us every day.
