Join our fight for the self-sufficiency of every low-income New Yorker!

At United Way of New York City, we live united to ensure no New Yorker is ever one paycheck away from hunger and homelessness. To create a city in which children and families can dare to dream and build a future for themselves—to progress from surviving to thriving. .
