In the face of rising Bay Area poverty, United Way’s innovative programs are moving people towards long-term financial stability every day. However, we know we must do more which is why we are bringing together thousands of individuals and organizations to build a larger movement. That movement is MAKE IT BE.
We all have a vision for a diverse, caring, and economically vibrant Bay Area. But 1 in 5 of us lives in poverty, standing in the way of that vision. 1 in 5 is not OK. Not in one of the richest, most forward-thinking regions in the world. We can’t sit on the sidelines. Let’s come together. Collectively. Let’s use our power to change our communities – step by step – block by block - one neighborhood at a time.
