United Way is where the community comes together to help people today in ways that create a stronger tomorrow for everyone.
Join us to create real and lasting change.

United Way leverages every contribution you make to help transform lives and bring long-lasting, meaningful changes to those in need. Want to lend your support to future efforts that prepare kids to graduate and succeed, help families leave poverty permanently and enable our neighbors to live healthy, responsible lives? Give to the United Way Today!
Because no single organization or single sector working alone can solve our communities’ most serious problems, United Way believes we must work together to unite non-profit and private sector efforts with those of government at every level. For this reason, public policy is an essential component to achieving our mission and goals.
The United Way of Greater Fall River and our certified nonprofit partners rely on volunteers like you. This is your resource to find the right opportunities to volunteer your time and to be a First Responder to the needs facing our region. If you are interested in volunteering, contact our main office today!

Our Work

Everyone Deserves An Opportunity!

United Way believes everyone deserves opportunities for a good life: a quality education that leads to sustaining job opportunities, enough income to support a family, and a good, healthy lifestyle that increases life expectancy.

It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.

Educational GoalsEducational Goals

Education is the cornerstone of individual and community success. But with more than 1.2 million children dropping out each year, America faces an education crisis. Our goal is to cut by half the number of young people who drop out of high school by 2018.


In 2008, United Way initiated an ambitious 10-year plan to cut in half the number of lower-income families who are financially unstable. With your help, we believe that by 2018 we can help 1.9 million working families get on the road to economic independence.


Whether it is a neighbor without health insurance, a victim of abuse, or someone struggling with mental illness or an addiction, know that everyone at the grater Fall River United Way is diligently working to ensure everyone has access to affordable and quality care.


What it means to LIVE UNITED.

  • United Way allows us to serve the greater needs of our community and influence the condition of all with one gift … a meaningful and heartfelt investment into Fall River, our home.

  • To me, LIVE UNITED is a reminder that we are all connected, interdependent—that we are all people. When we think of other’s lives as connected to our own, our compassion grows.
