Our Mission, Vision, and Diversity & Inclusion Statement of Principle
To measurably improve the quality of people's lives in Lake County.
United Way of Lake County will become the entrusted champion that drives improved outcomes in our community by funding services that impact health, education, and financial stability.
At United Way of Lake County we help people.There is a face behind every program we serve. A mother grateful for formula to sooth her baby's hunger. A teen relieved to find help outside the dark tunnel of addiction. A senior comforted knowing access to warm meals and needed medication is available. A woman and her children's terror from domestic abuse alleviated by access to a safe haven. A parent's burden lifted knowing her children will not go to bed hungry. A child's confidence boosted knowing he or she can now read to the level of his classmates and will not be left behind. A homeless little girl most thankful for a shower. These are just some of the people your support impacts when you give to United Way of Lake County.
Diversity & Inclusion - Statement of Principle
United Way of Lake County believes that every person is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect – this includes equal treatment and access to justice. Acts of racism in our society prevent all members of the community from being treated with the humanity and respect they each deserve.
We stand against racism of all forms.
We value the visible and invisible qualities that makes each person who they are.
We welcome that every person brings a unique perspective and experience to advance our mission and progress our fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community.
We believe that each United Way community member, donor, volunteer, advocate, and employee must have equal access to solving community problems.
We must all do our part, working United, to make our communities the places that we need them to be – equitable, respectful and opportunity-filled. We, as a society, can and must do better to guarantee that the basic human rights and freedoms of every person in every community are protected.
