United Way is working to help build resilient people and thriving communities by strengthening the building blocks of
opportunity—education, income, health—and safety net services. We collaborate with community partners to address
the root causes of issues and challenges for people in Deschutes County. The single most important thing we can do
is to reduce traumatic experiences and toxic stress for children and families. By focusing on child abuse prevention
and basic needs like food and stable housing, we’re able to change the lives of thousands of people in our community.
Together, we help build strong, resilient families, individuals, and communities where everyone can live a productive,
healthy and happy life.
