Together, We Can Make Their Future Brighter.

Our world looks different than anyone imagined a few years ago. Whether it’s because of the war in Ukraine, COVID’s economic impact or inflation – it’s a challenging time.

It’s no exaggeration to say that the most vulnerable – including low-income ethnic and racial minorities, the youngest and oldest in under-resourced communities, and anyone who was barely getting by before – are struggling more than ever.

United Way is stepping up to respond, as we always do. We’re helping people deal with immediate needs. But we’re also helping communities recover – and rebuild, together. We envision a strong, resilient Greater Fall River where everyone can thrive.

Here’s what we’re tackling right now:

  • Daycare costs, by providing sliding scale scholarships for daycare and preschool at two local centers
  • The mental health crisis, by funding mental and behavioral healthcare for folks of all ages, no matter their insurance status
  • Lack of access to service by providing Massachusetts state identification cards for those in need
  • Food instability by giving out over $50,000 in food grants to food pantries and soup kitchens

But we have so much more to do. Our community is struggling with limited access to mental health resources, the ever-increasing cost of housing, and limited spots in early childhood education centers. 

Together, we can offer local solutions that will make a difference in Greater Fall River. Together, we can make life
better for those who need help the most right now. Join us today by donating to our annual campaign.

Together, we Live United.
