WE ARE ON A MISSION TO CHANGE LIVES FOREVER IN FREDERICK. For more than 75 years, we have continually set and reached ambitious goals. In 2008, United Way Worldwide initiated a comprehensive program designed to achieve the following goals by 2018:

  • Improve education and cut the number of high school dropouts — 1.2 million students every year— in half.
  • Help people achieve financial stability and get 1.9 million working families — half the number of lower-income families who are financially unstable — on the road to economic independence.
  • Promote healthy lifestyles and increase by one-third the number of youth and adults who are healthy and avoid risky behaviors.
