United Way saves the community thousands of dollars by consolidating fund raising efforts, providing a clear form of accountability, and investing in a diverse group of local non-profits. Every organization is looking to maximize its investments and time commitments. What better way than the United Way to reach this goal, giving through one agency to impact hundreds of thousands of residents, here at home.
United Way of South Texas (serving Hidalgo and Starr Counties) funds over 100 programs through 22 Partner Agencies and numerous Community Impact Grant recipients. Through these programs, we are helping youth succeed, strengthening and supporting families by providing employment placement for the disabled, elderly assistance, transportation assistance, emergency shelter, CPR training, and many other critical services.
