Mission & Goals
United Way of Santa Rosa County improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of the Santa Rosa County Community.
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 - education, income and health.
Our National Goals
In 2008, United Way initiated a 10-year 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 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.
