Mission & Goals

Our Mission

United Way of Santa Rosa County improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of the Santa Rosa County Community.

Our Vision

We will build a stronger America by mobilizing our community to improve people's lives. To do this we are working to advance the common good by focusing on the building blocks to a good life: health, education and income stability.

Our National Goals are Adopted Locally

In 2008, when United Way initiated a 10-year program designed to achieve the following goals by 2018:

  • Improve education, and cut in half the number of high school dropouts, which is 1.2 million¬†students, every year.
  • 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 lives, and increase by one-third the number of youth and adults who are healthy and avoid risky behaviors.

Our goals are ambitious, but with your help, and by utilizing our core strengths, a national network, committed partners, and public engagement capacity, we can achieve them.
