Creating Opportunities for Better Lives for All in Kern County

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life, a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. That's why United Way of Central Eastern California's work is focused on the building blocks for a good life.

Childhood Literacy

Helping children achieve their potential through early childhood development.

Economic Resilience

Helping families become financially stable and independent.

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way of Central Eastern California’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. LIVING UNITED means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.
