What We Stand For

Victoria County United Way 

The Victoria County United Way works with many partners to improve the lives of people living in the Crossroads area. In addtion to helping boys and girls learn in a safe enviroment (Boys & Girls Club), provide temporary housing for those in need (Mid-Coast Family Services and Perpetual Help Home), help seniors obtain meals (Victoria Senior Citizens) and helping many other organizations as listed in the Partner Agency tab, we also have worked non-stop since August 25th when Hurricane Harvey hit our region to help people recover from the storm. 

Through strong partnerships with volunteers, local business, government and nonprofit organizations, United Way accomplishes what no one can do alone. These are basic things that we all need for a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, income that can support a family through retirement, and good health. Together, we can Build a Better Community!
